About Me

70 now and our five wonderful years aboard our narrowboat Skyy seem along time ago. Jacquie, allowed me to build my replica three wheeler kit car, which was a great success. Now it's time to start on a bigger project and that is to make a good Triumph Stag even better, here goes.

First job was to fill with water before we went back up the two locks and second job was to get the loo tank pumped out at Kate Boat yard, just after bridge 49, where the nice lady asked if I was OK to DIY, no problem. Now it was on to bridge 43 where Tescos provided what Lidl couldn’t the day before. We stayed here in the sunshine before moving on to the tree shaded canal immediately opposite Leamington Railway Station, having already sussed out that there was Armco here that we could moor up to, just before the short flight of steps that ran up to the main road.

Agnes and Johanne, very good friends, had flown from their beautiful town in Bavaria, to spend a week in Bournemouth and having spent a week there, soaking up the sunshine they caught a direct train to Leamington to spend a week on SKYY, soaking up the rain, at least that was what the forecast promised us. However we had supper on the stern of SKYY watching the sun set over the canal.
