After months of attempting a new boat blog on my own and finding little time to blog while adjusting to a new country and a new life as part of a boating duo, Les and I decided to retool his boater's blog to include us both.
We hope you will like the new look and contunue to follow along on our journeys. I will now be blogging here as well in an attempt to keep all my peeps back in the States informed of where we are. Having sent out a dozen Inland Waterways maps to my nearest and dearest, I've been asked to keep them posted on a blog.
I will also include my brief impressions of things seen, heard, and experienced aboard NB Valerie, incidental anecdotes about living in England as an ex-pat, and recipes for some of our favorite meals --adapted for boaters with small boat ovens!
Today we are moored at Newbold-on-Avon, on the N. Oxford canal just North of Rugby next to Newbold tunnel. We will stay here a few more days as ice has formed on the canal during the night with temperatures at 32F/0C overnight.
