360 - Jo Abandons Ship!


This video was filmed in November 2020 This is a bit of a different vlog as we had a couple of challenges. Firstly we had a car with us when we filmed this video and so we had the complication of having to move the car as well as the boat. We also both managed to run the batteries down on our phones so we only really have the go-pro footage so I did my best with the footage I had. By the time we move the boat again we have a new camera so we don't have this problem again. I hope you enjoy the vlog despite the challenges. Thanks for understanding.

353 - Trouble at the Tunnel


Today's vlog was filmed on the 4th October 2020 We move our narrowboat from Congleton on the Macclesfield Canal to just south of the Harecastle Tunnel on the Trent & Mersey Canal. So sad to be saying goodbye to the Macclesfield for many reasons. It is the last bit of new territory we will be exploring for a while and it is incredibly peaceful and beautiful. Travel through the tunnel needed to be booked in advance as the time of filming and even though we were early we had some difficulties with the tunnel keeper which kind of put a dampener on the day.
