End of Cruise - Time to Relax and Enjoy

Sunday 10th December

We are back at the marina, a very pleasant cruise back for most of the day. A bit wet at the end and now its back to the rain and winds again! All in all it has been a great few days, new places, new people and new things learnt about Epiphany and how she acts, reacts and performs.

The carols at Pewsey became rather a “busman’s holiday” for BJ! Unfortunately, the advertised Peter Atwell had double booked and was unable to come at the last minute. Someone, (own up if it was you!) remembered that the SOW hatted guy was a Vicar, a Rev on a boat! BJ was only too pleased to help and took the mike to lead the singing, and generally do “Vicary” things! Two carol sheets between the crowd meant everyone's memory was tested, but all were in good voice. We had a good time and only hope that everyone else enjoyed themselves too; many thanks to all those who arranged it, the band and also the cooks – delicious. The rest of the evening went with a swing in the bar and we really enjoyed meeting fellow narrow boaters and certainly hope to see them all again.

PS Are there any Cornish out there in Narrowboat Land? Over the years we have seen quite a few Cornish flags and St Pirans flags flying on boats. Boats called Curnow, Kernow, Tywardreath, and lots more. Let us know, leave a message, get in touch. We may be able to have our own little Gods Wonderful County links across the cut!
