A short cruise

Well we moved the boat at last!  Took a while to get away.  All these things to do before untying from the pontoon.  Washing machine going on mains power so we waited for that to finish.  Empty the bucket, fill the tank, open the sliding hatch, lift the fenders, start the engine. It started first time!  Hang on, remove the chimney, oh and the TV aerial.  Are we ready to move now?

We did all of five lock miles and stopped just past Bourton Lock 27.  Done three locks all with help from other boaters on the move and it was sunny.  Are we going to be fair weather boaters from now on?  Now we have to put the chimney and the TV aerial up again!  Oh good we got a picture.
