This morning we finally left our mooring and set off for some Summer cruising. When Keith was ill, I was told it would be a long haul and they were not kidding. January 2014 to April 2015 that is a long haul and a half.
Our neighbour Jack and her wonderful Spaniel Poppy-Willow waved us off, as we said “Cheerio” to our mooring for at least a couple of months.
This cruise means a lot to the both of us after everything that Keith went through. I know you will be saying, that I also went through a lot as well, but hey I had it easy
Anyway we set off in beautiful sunshine and a warmish breeze. We decided to stop off in Leamington-Spa for some lunch at our favourite Chinese Buffet Oriental Star. The walk back to the boat walked off our fabulous lunch.
We have stopped at Radford Semele for the night. The sun is still shining, but the breeze is now a little chilly. Marmite was very keen to get off the boat on her lead,l so she could roll in the dust and grass. Paddy just wanted to sit on the back counter and watch the world go by, so it seems like they were just as excited at being out and about again.
We said “Cheerio” to our friends in the arm, but we hope to see friends along the way. So if you hear us coming or see us please say “Hello”.
Here is a shout out to Marian, who came to see us yesterday and showed me her crochet. It was lovely to meet you and thank you for reading my blog.
