Friends on the Cut

Fellow bloggers around every corner lately. Always nice to cross paths even if the crew are sometimes off the boat.

Del and Al on Derwent 6
Lynne and Paul on Piston Broke
Jo and Keith on Hadar

Woke the other morning to the sound of dogs barking and a horn sounding. Jaq said it was a hunt and she was spot on. Before I grabbed the camera 2 Scarlet coated riders who we believe were the Master of the hunt and the Master of the hounds had ridden across the field followed by the hounds. As Fox hunting is now illegal I assume the hounds were following a scent trail laid down before the hunt began.

This is the Canal shop where we purchased the compost toilet. originally it was at Whilton marina but is now at Hillmorton Wharf by bridge 73. It is built over one of two wet docks and has diesel and a large chandlery sales area plus the same friendly staff.
Jaq got the price wrong, it was £799 ($1200) but I think this compares well with perhaps a pump out or the vacu flush prices. Best of all nothing to fail except perhaps the very small fan.
No more cassette emptying.

An evening sky like this is just one of the reasons this is such a good life. If you are not a boater living this life remember you get one life so whatever you choose to do with your life please don`t leave it to long.

Hello Steve! We apologize for overlooking you at the water point. We were on a mission to get some things done and over the moon to catch up with Jo & Keith. We've added you to our blog roll and put a link to your blog site on ours. We will look out for you and Maggie in the future.
All the best,
