SUNDAY 6TH APRIL
Tim, of Union Canal Carriers who carried out our bottom blacking of which we are very pleased, said that we would be let out of the dry dock at 8am on Sunday morning. Quelle surprise. Neige and lots of it. Beautiful clear blue sky and fresh white snow as we cruised back to Napton.
We spent the rest of the day cleaning all the dirt from the topsides, that had been left behind by the jet washing, ready for he arrival first thing Monday morning of Kim and John the repribates who persuaded us that a life on the canals would be the very best thing, however we now realise that just thought it might lead to cheap canal holidays on something considerable more comfortable than you can hire. Got it right didn't they.
