Return to a spanking new looking Petroc

Such a smart boat

We are absolutely delighted with Petrocs new Look.  Tony at Grist Mill Boatyard has done a fantastic job on her.   Not only all the topsides painted but all the wood around the windows has been replaced.
A very necessary job as it was somewhat rotten.
We delayed a day in Cornwall as the forecast was dire and it has worked out well.   WE have been able to load up Petroc with all our belongings and a big shop all in the dry.

We are moored in the marina here in Worcester which is very pleasant although not sure Barney agrees.   He does not like stepping on and off the boat onto a pontoon.    However there are lots of nice walks close by so he shouldn't complain too much.

Looking towards the canal from the basin
The lower Diglis Canal lock which we hope to go down tomorrow onto the river.
Lots of wild flowers in the surrounding fields, I am not sure what these are.

Left to Tewksbury for us

We are reasonably ignorant when it comes to things horticultural!!!
