Shop front in the summer

Saturday, 29 October 2011


I went to a Halloween party last night, which was great fun… It’s always good to catch up with friends too and hear the latest news from around the canal network. It's amazing the effort that so many people put into their costumes. I on the other hand felt a bit out of place, although I have never been keen on dressing up!

That meant that I wasn’t up as early as normal this morning, so Annie only got a very quick walk before I headed into work. The sun was shining although it was cold – I reckon it was the coldest night so far. One of our customers’s who travelled back from Wheaton Aston claimed that Jack Frost had paid a visit, although I am yet to see him!

All of the boats returned without issues and we have only turned two shared boats around, which has meant that today has seemed a bit quiet compared to any other Saturday.

We had a dayboat book last minute, which departed at about 11 and were back ontime for 4.30.

We have seen a few working boats through in the last few days which have included Iain and Clair’s ex-FMC motorboat Plover and John and Sue Yates’ ex-GUCCCo. Motorboat Buckden, both of which were heading in a southerly direction for the winter.

Not much more to report today, so until tomorrow!

Best regards,


P.S. Don’t forget to change your clocks!
