Yes, we have a couple of weeks on Shadow coming up next month. Hooray! The boat is now based at Wigram's Turn, which will be quicker for us to drive to than Tattenhall, which is where it was before. And two weeks gives us a lot of cruising options. I'm looking forward to sitting down with a few Nicholson's guides, and seeing where we could go. There's a bit of the BCN we haven't done; or we could go to Oxford; or to Stratford; or down to Northampton or up to Stoke Bruerne. We could do one of several rings ... but we won't go on the Thames this time.
I'll have to check on stoppages, of course, but I'm expecting scheduled works to be out of the way by April. Oh, and CanalPlan will be consulted too.
The photo is of us returning to Tattenhall last July after a trip up the Llangollen Canal. That's Hurleston Reservoir behind the grassy bank and fence.
