We where off ,full of enthusiasm for a new adventure. Oh dear how we struggled, how we bow hauled, pulled ,pushed , in the end towed by the powerful Phoenix with Matt and Linda at the helm.
This canal is so shallow , we are crawing along at one mile per hour.
However it is so quiet and peaceful ,much more like going through a garden pond with wild flowers ,wildlife a plenty .
We are only the third boat up here this year!?
The big question is should we continue and do the lot about 20 miles or go back while there's some water beneath us?????
