Typically it was a wonderful day on our return from Shropshire and the colours and the scenery were wonderful. We went back by the route we used to take on our many visits to Hereford, via Tewkesbury, Stow on the Wold, Chipping Norton and Aylesbury. It’s a lovely drive, so much more interesting than the motorway, and there is very little traffic and never traffic jams.
There was little change back at Cassio Wharf though the towpath was even muddier than when we left. We’ll head over to Rickmansworth at the weekend. There have been several passing boats coming North today so hopefully there will be some space.
In the meantime Alan is having a huge sort out of all his hobby activity paraphernalia (for want of a better word and I am sure you know what I mean). You know the saying “It’ll get worse before it gets better”: well we are definitely at the worst at the moment, and it doesn’t take much to upset the equilibrium in a narrowboat!
