September Cruise - Day One

We had an amazingly traffic-free journey to Norbury Junction, so arrived much earlier than planned. Fortunately, the boat yard has a cafe. Our Tesco delivery arrived on time, as did our friends, and then the final piece of the jigsaw fell into place: the boat was ready. We loaded our stuff on board, and set off at around 2.30.

It was a lovely sunny day, and the canal was new territory for us, over embankments and through cuttings. We moored up for the night at Wheaton Aston, where we made use of the Spar shop for the things we'd forgotten. Dinner on board, and we were all in bed by 9.30, at the end of a long day.
