In 1977 we hired our first narrowboat from Anglo Welsh at Market Harborough.From that moment our destiny was set. In 2006 we finally purchased our own brand new 57' narrowboat which we named 'Free Spirit'. Our aim is to travel the length and breadth of all the navigable rivers and canals of the UK. This will be our story as it unfolds.
The meal at the New Inn was everything it was cracked up to be. Good food and good service. Price was very reasonable for 3 main meals and 3 deserts.The total only coming to roughly £48 for the three of us. It wasn't until Ian checked the bill this morning that we realised that all the drinks had been missed off. Thats 2 pints of Bitter, ( Ian ) 2 pints coke, ( Chris cause he was driving ) and 2 large glasses of red wine for guess who! We did feel a bit guilty this morning but then again it wasn't our fault they forgot to add it to the bill. Anyway after washing the roof and side of the boat and taking Jade for her walk, we traveled a few 100yds to the water point. The other side of the boat was washed and within 30 minutes we were once more on our way. As we dont need to be off the River Wey until tomorrow and because I loved the meadow so much below Paper Court Lock, that is where we made for. Ian will check batteries and maybe do a bit of painting. I'm off exploring again and taking my macro lens on the camera to see what else there is to photograph. It's a bit windier today so trying to keep my subjects still might be challenging but I'm going to give it a go.
Tiny Perch. Still gave me a bit of a fight though!
