Plans scuppered!

After a broken night's sleep we decided to brave the wind and move on. I wasn't feeling brilliant, I think Mandy has passed her cold on to me. After a mere two locks I decided I had had enough so we gave up and moored between Grove and Slapton.

We discovered today that our plans had been scuppered. We had planned to go down the Aylesbury Arm as a side trip on our way southwards but found out today that it is closed due to low water.

Today's journey 2.1 miles and 2 locks

So far this year we have travelled 433.2 miles, 387 locks, 1 swing bridge, 34 lift bridges and 15 tunnels

Since Ray retired we have travelled 1163.9 miles, 1034 locks, 56 swing bridges, 38 lift bridges and 40 tunnels
