Moving slowly on

We have continued our slow progress northwards to Hurleston and then on to the Llangollen Canal. Still being towed by Kathy, as our attempts to track down a second-hand injector pump have been unsuccessful. We don't have the money for an exchange replacement one at the moment.

We spent nearly a week at Tyrley while Destiny's water pump was fixed, then a few days in Market Drayton before moving on to Audlem. We spent a few days at Audlem, celebrated Imbolc, enjoyed the folk music at the Shroppie Fly on Monday night after Ray and I had been to Mandy's place for the weekend.
We moved on to Nantwich on Tuesday after the wind had died down. Thursday saw us move onto the Llangollen and we are now just outside Whitchurch "enjoying" yet another windy day. I have to work tomorrow so it will be at least Tuesday before we move on. Kathy and I are starting to feel Spring is on it's way as we saw snowdrops on the bank at the bottom of Audlem flight, catkins on the trees on the Llangollen and even our first daffodil.

We are now famous (or infamous!) as someone posted a photo of our boat convoy on Canal World. I'm not blogging very much, as nothing much is happening.

 Since my last post we have travelled 29.7 miles, 46 locks and 4 lift bridges.

This year we have travelled 37.2 miles, 46 locks and 4 lift bridges.

Since Ray retired we have travelled 777.5 miles, 688 locks, 55 swing bridges, 8 lift bridges and 25 tunnels.
