Petroc was built by Darren Aldridge Boats. We are very pleased with her as she is light and airy and also comfortable to live on. This will be our eleventh year of cruising throughout the summer. (Of a 5 year plan!) Our house in Cornwall is let out via Owners Direct whilst we are cruising
We spent two nights in our last mooring just outside Braunston and managed to do some sorting out.
Wednesday morning we had our last trip of the year down through the 3 Hillmorton Locks. Back to narrow locks again. The forecast was not brilliant but apart from a strong wind we were very lucky and had a large amount of sunshine. However autumn is definitely here as there is quite a nip in the air and big coats, hats and gloves were called for. The strong NE wind did not help.
We reached Clifton just before lunch and the big pack up began.
