Rock and Roll on a Narrowboat, Yeah!

As you see from the previous post Blogger was playing up, hence my last cruise blog is now a day late!

Monday night on the Kennet and Avon canal was very wild! At one time I thought we were on the high seas the boat was rocking and rolling so much. Isn't it nice though to be tucked up in a warm bed, on a narrowboat; enjoying the freedom and knowing that the ropes are really secure, the roof stuff is tied down well or inside and so you can relax. Or that is the theory! This time for us it was fact! Rock on!

However true to form Tuesday dawned sunny again, with a bit of cloud this time. So off we set back to Devizes. A few boats were on the move.

This stretch has a lot of line moorings so tick over is the order of the day making a short journey a mite longer. We are beginning to recognise people and boats and anyway when there is no hurry why worry.

Mooring up to take on fuel at the marina we met Sue and Vic from No Problem 2 (which is actually in the paint shop) and Anne and Charles from Moore 2 Life. A good natter ensued, NP2 is really taking shape and Sue let us have a "nose". Of course we reciprocated and showed her Epiphany.

So Epiphany was back home. It was the first time we have got back to the marina in the dry and no wind so manoeuvering into her berth was straightforward. Time to replenish the larder, finish a few jobs and go back to work and our other life for a short while.
