Boo Hoo - End Of Easter Break

As they say all good things come to an end. Epiphany is back at her mooring, we are back to our life briefly, before it changes and we move on to Epiphany.

Today was overcast as we returned from Pewsey, but still warm. We passed quite a few boats that seemed newly moored up on the stretch. This once again made it a slow section - four hours this time. Four or five hire boats were also enjoying the scenery. Mostly from Alvechurch at Hilperton although we passed Golden Oriel, an Anglo Welsh boat from Sydney Wharf in Bath - managed by Bath Narrowboats. They were going the opposite way so must be out for a while longer.

We called in at Broad Lane Farm, Sells Green (Bath Narrowboats workshop) on our way home. They have 4 boats in build. One is due to go in the water next week. They are all Colecraft shells and are being fitted to owner specification and the usual high standard acheived by Bath Narrowboats. The so called "Crick Boat" looks interesting and we are looking forward to seeing it finished at Crick. Make sure you come and see the stand - we hope to be there some of the time as "Owners"!
