Ten Bob Note  
 

Tuesday 12th February 2008

Location: Hillmorton, Warwickshire, Oxford Canal

Today: 5 miles, 0 locks. Total distance: 1115 miles.  Total locks: 712

We are both still feeling under the weather again today but had to move to take on water.

Moved down to the water point beside the Midland Chandlers. Emptied the water tank totally and gave it a good flushing through before re-filling it.

Headed up the Oxford on our way to Tesco before we continue on up north. Decided to stop just south of Hillmorton as neither of us felt up to continuing on through the locks today. Will head on to Rugby and Tesco tomorrow.

I was going to fire up the chainsaw to cut up the wood we have collected on the roof but in the end I just couldn’t find the energy so it will have to wait.
 
Last time we were passing this way we came across a sunken boat. The boat has now been re-floated and moved a few miles. Photo below.

Current mooring

I think this is the boat that was sunk the last time we passed it? Story here
