We Have Done It!

At last we have both moved. Another car load, but not so much this time, and John has said goodbye to Cornwall. We are settled in our new home!

Epiphany is rather overloaded as we have lots of spare food to be stored. The larder cupboard is totally full of tins, packets etc. The fridge is chocablock with opened jars and sauces. The freezer is packed so will be cheap to run for a bit.

The stern bunks have a box and some bits and pieces to be put away. However we can take our time to sort this all out. At least the boat looks reasonably tidy.

On the roof we have a roofbox - bought for a trip to France years ago and it has not been used since. We have moved with it before, little dreaming it would eventually come in very useful. At the moment it has logs in it but it will eventually store a spare wheelchair and bits and bobs!

So now we start "living our dream". It is wonderful to think that we can just unhook, pull in the ropes and in less than 5 minutes we can be cruising on the Kennet and Avon canal and we take our narrowboat home with us.

Unforunately we have to travel to Crick in the car, but maybe another year? Don't forget to visit stand LB8 and have a look at the Bath Narrowboats show boat "Aethelburh". John will be watching it craned onto the lorry tomorrow morning for the trip to Crick. We will be there Saturday and Sunday.

I will finish with a view from the car park!
