We left our mooring on the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union in glorious Spring sunshine at about 10:00 am.
But not before taking time for yet ‘another’ walk, taking the opportunity to snap a few pictures of the restoration work on the un-navigable section of the canal.
We’re now cruising under the bridge and are exiting the arm; re-joining the Grand Union Main Line.
We turned right at the junction, and headed towards Cowroast, leaving Marsworth Locks behind.
When we visited the butchers in Tring yesterday, there was rather a bit of ‘excitement’ due to the opticians across the way being broken into, and several policemen were inside gathering evidence. The butcher said they were having a spate of robberies lately, including boats being broken into near this junction. It maybe hearsay, but it’s always a good reminder to be careful.
As we were cruising through a cutting, the sun went in, and it turned cold. We decided to call it a day after sanny duties, and the first lock.
We’re now moored just before the first Dudswell Lock. As soon as we moored, the sun came out!
Today we’ve cruised just under 5 miles, and 1 lock.
