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

Short run today to Doncaster. In the morning I was required to sign some documents for son Giles but the PO here did not have a fax machine. However they directed me to a small print shop which did. Whilst waiting for the fax I was fascinated by their clock on the wall
Faxes done we watered etc and followed a largish boat through the lifting bridge which Geoff opened. They waited for us at the lock which was huge.
Just after leaving we passed an old church at Sandall Grove
Gentle run then into Doncaster. We are on the outside of a pontoon mooring which is not the best for Barnaby. There is some grass for him if we go outside the security gate but we are definitely in an urban mooring today.
