Time to say Goodbye.

Hello Friends and Followers.

I have popped back after my blogging holiday to say. I am going to stop blogging for now. I feel I need to take a break. As the picture above say's. It may just be for a while I am not sure. I will leave the blog running just in case I change my mind.

I have a life to live and I want to get on and live it. So I am sorry if you pop in each day to read my ramblings, but I am say "Cheerio" for now.

Before I go. For all of those who have left me comments as Anon. It does say that I do not publish Anon comments, so please if you wish for your comment to be seen, leave me your name at least at the bottom of your post.

Kind regards for now.

Day 92: Too Hot.

Hi Friends and Followers.

Due to the heat, which I should not complain about, because we are so lucky to have this weather, I have decided I am not going to blog for a while.
I am going to go and sit beneath a tree and cool off for the rest of the Summer.

I hope your Summer is a good one. I am taking a break from Blogging and having a holiday. I hope you have enjoyed reading my journey so far and I am sure I will return.

Bye for now xxx

Day 91: Goodbye Gloucester.

Hi Friends and Followers.

We had a wonderful final time in Gloucester. We did a spot of shopping, before going to Aroma, Indian Restaurant for lunch. If you are ever in Gloucester and love Indian food, then do go there. The food was very scrummy.
This morning the view from the engine room was blue sky and sunshine, with the heat already rising. Paddy got his walk in the relative cool, before we got the boat ready to leave the docks at 8 am.
We entered the lock and waved goodbye to such a wonderful city, which we will most certainly visit again.
Lock gates opened and we headed off up river. With a hope of mooring at Lower Lode.
No room at the Inn, so we carried on up through Upper Lode Lock.
The lock keeper rang the Avon Lock keeper to ask if she had any moorings for us, which she did, so we made our way to the mouth of the River Avon and Avon Lock.
We will be heading up onto the Avon in a couple of days and head for Stratford.

Pop back soon xxx

Day 89: Cheerio Saul Junction.

Hi Friends and Followers.

Another stunner of a day began early doors at 6am for me. I was up and making a cuppa, which we enjoyed in bed, whilst marmite made herself comfortable on my lap and the Seagulls announced the morning.
We said "Cheerio" to Saul Junction for this trip and headed for Gloucester.
It was a stunning cruise, with lovely views.
It has been wonderful to see the Swans and their Cygnets. It seems to have been a good year for Swan broods.
Gloucester beckoned, but before entering the docks, we took on water, because I had done a few washes and I knew the tank would be pretty low, even though we can go for two to three weeks.
We moored up on the longest pontoon and went for a walk to the Llanthony Secunda Priory.
The Priory dates back to the 15th Century and is undergoing lots of work at the moment, som we could not get very close due to barriers, but it was still nice to see it and hopefully when we come this way again we will be able to visit properly. On our way back to the boat, we called in at the Antiques Centre and then back to the boat.

Pop back sometime xx

Hello Friends and Followers.

Another beautiful day.
We took ourselves off for a walk down the route of the Stroud Navigation on the Cotswold Canal and ended up having lunch at the pretty Fromebridge Mill.
