Hanging around

Time to move a little way just to keep BW happy. The rules say 14 days in any one place then you must move to the next parish/village on your journey so as we had been moored at Grove Mill for just over three weeks we thought we should move. Our water tanks were running low anyway!

On Saturday we moved down to Cassiobury Park then yesterday we carried on to Common Moor, our old mooring spot from a couple of years back, pausing only to fill our water tanks at Cassiobridge Lock.
Ray has managed to get some work so we may be a bit better off but that depends on how much work he gets. No luck on the job front for me but I'm a bit restricted as Ray needs the car so anything I do has to be walking distance or public transport.

Nothing much to report, we had a nice Sunday dinner with Bob and Babs a couple of weeks ago, time goes so quickly, I can't believe it less than five weeks to Christmas.

Since my last post we have travelled 2.6 miles and 4 locks

So far this year we have travelled 456.8 miles, 437 locks, 3 swing bridges, 34 lift bridges and 15 tunnels

Since Ray retired we have travelled 1187.5 miles, 1086 locks, 58 swing bridges, 38 lift bridges and 40 tunnels
