Pewsey to Wootton Rivers on the Kennet and Avon

Up later than we planned, we didn't get going till about 10am.

George turned into a nervous wreck as soon as we started the engine and got underfoot as we prepared to leave, only relaxing when he realised that he and I would we walking the towpath once more while Michael steered the boat. It is only 3 or so miles to our destination. A quick goodbye to our neighbour on NB Luke and then slowly passed the long line of moored boats including the ex life raft boat that Michael got a little peek inside when George was having his early morning walk.

A Short hope hop from Honey Street to Pewsey

Today we leave Honey street, the sight of the incident, the crop circle obsessed pub and the 4 boats on the visitor moorings who have all overstayed the 24 hour limit.

The Incident at Honey Street

In the last five months we have met a lot of people on our narrowboat travels. We have had some wonderful interactions, some pleasant interactions, some interactions we were indifferent to... and today we had our first bad interaction with a fellow boater.

I Want to Blog More!

I want to blog more, so here goes. 

Today we left Devizes. The moorings there are 72 hours and we had certainly taken advantage of the full three nights after arriving triumphantly on Sunday, having ascended the 29 locks of Caen hill.
