The field finished at a main road but crossing brought us into a quiet lane passing under the canal past the church and into the village.
Jaq and I have a joke between us that I never if at all possible walk back the same way.
This time it was no different and we walked a few hundred yards from the post office to the canal towpath.
My model has her finger in the grooves worn by ropes of horse drawn boats back in the days of heavy commercial use of the canals.
It`s hard to imagine rope wearing down the iron guards but I guess it caused less damage to the rope than if the brickwork took the wear.
Just another quiet day in our life afloat. I said to Jaq remember when we had to use the car to go to the post office stateside or walk 7 miles along roads all the way.
One of the parcels contained my new solar controller. It`s 30 amp Tracer 3215 capable of handling 390watts of solar panels. With just my 230watt panel connected it is giving 10 amps on a not very nice afternoon. Not wanting to sit in front of it all day I guess it will in good sun go up to 13amps, I stand to be corrected.
