Ten Bob Note


Wednesday 11th March 2009

Location: Rugby, Warwickshire, Oxford Canal

Today: 3 miles, 0 locks. Total distance: 1999 miles.  Total locks: 1361

Pulled the pins around 09:30 this morning and headed the short distance down to Rugby to do a shop at Tesco.

Archie was just about out of dog food so I took the boat to Tesco so that I could buy one of the big 12kg sacks of his favorite dried food.

Passed nb Derwent-6 moored at Brownsover. Stopped and had a quick chat with Del and Al. Very pleased to have met them and so pleased to see them enjoying their new life afloat so much.

The canals have become noticeably busier this last week. Lots of boats coming out of hibernation after the winter months. Most of the winter stoppages are over now as well so that will also be bringing boaters out for their summer cruises.

I have a guest arriving tomorrow........
