January 2011 was the start of my blog as we got ready to leave our home, jobs and family in Sussex and start our 'gap year' (well, 18 months actually) travelling the inland waterways. It also means we have now completed 9 months of that time. It's going so fast!
We have covered 1561 miles and worked 1282 locks. Do you think we will make our aim of covering the rest of the canals and rivers before October? If the weather stays as mild as it has been over the next 2 months maybe we're in for a chance.
We returned to Tacet late on Thursday night, and left Gayton on Friday after shopping, returning the hire car and refilling the water tank. Just a short cruise to Weedon.
Yesterday we moved on to Braunston, locking through Buckby and Braunston locks with nb Teal, thanks for waiting and your help guys.
And today we have moved on to Long Itchington on the way back to Leamington Spa, as we came through without stopping a few weeks ago and would like to look around there.
Friday - Sunday
25 miles, 26 locks
