|So quiet and peaceful|
|We passed tatty boats.......|
|.....and pretty boats|
|Swans with their young|
|We went under the M6|
We eventually stopped just short of Anstey in the exact same spot we had moored before, lovely open countryside. The railway is alongside with frequent trains but after a while you cease to notice their passing.
Geoff as usual remembered the spot he wanted to moor and as usual I have no recollection of having been here before!!!! Still I think it makes for a more interesting life, every place is new to me............
We have managed to get everything serviceable on Petroc and have even bought a slightly bigger TV (eyes are not what they used to be!). The Sat receiver has been replaced by a Freesat Box. However I failed miserably to get my GPS to work with my new computer which is running Windows 8. Lots of emails and help from Stuart at Water Explorer and much trolling of forums has shown that the chip in my GPS gadget is not compatible with Windows 8....Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! So a new one, with I trust the later chip, will have to be purchased. Meanwhile I am using MotionX-GPS app on my iphone from which I hope to be able to upload our position daily for those of you who may be close enough to contemplate a visit.
