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

Yet more locks
The Stoke flight and the Astwood flight were the goal today. In fact Geoff had a bigger goal than me. We have decided to go via Droitwich and the Severn as Droitwich Spa seems like a better place for the weekend. Geoff had designs on reaching there today, but after the first few locks I decided that after 29 yesterday, another 20 today would be too much. So after a little bit of grumbling( it is a male thing!) we found a very congenial spot in the middle of the Astwood flight. Lovely countryside and great view, even some sunshine to sit out in for a while. Sadly thin cloud slowly built up and I was driven indoors but it was good whilst it lasted............we hear the promise of colder weather again for the weekend........
