Wednesday 21st October, 2015 at Aston Marina.
Never moor under trees in autumn - even beautiful beeches! Heavy rain overnight brought the leaves showering down on MM's roof and R had only washed it the day before. Bother!
We set off at midday, with only five miles and one lock before us. This year, Sandon lock was our first lock of the trip in June and now it is the last lock in October - how fitting, and how poignant...
A22, MM's mooring spot awaited her, although a strong wind made backing her in "interesting". (note from M - R did splendidly, as always!).
So here we are, at the end of yet another marvellous summer cruise. Feeling "happy/sad", we said to each other. Happy to be going home for the winter, to friends, family and lots of lovely things planned. Yet sad that a wonderful cruise is finally at an end.
Next year? Who knows?
We look forward to being back in the spring.
Today: 5 miles, 1 lock and 3.9 hours.
Trip: 514 miles, 345 locks and 382.7 hours.
Since MM was launched: 2,109 miles, 1,451 locks and 1,660.1 hours.
