|Moved near a bridge to load up "Chalice"|
In an ideal world, what should already have happened is serious attempts to get "Chalice" sold, but we felt it only fair on whoever buys her that we made some effort to tidy her up a bit. Fortunately she is a sound and reliable boat, but after being boated very intensively last year, (more than we have ever done before), some bits were looking decidedly in need of a bit of TLC.

|Odin is absolutely overjoyed to be boating again!|
|"Sudbury" shares a Willow Wrewn livery with our "Flamingo"|
So today we loaded up, and set off. No great rush, as the feedback is that the bridge stoppage is highly unlikely to end early, so if we arrived there any earlier than tomorrow evening, we are unlikely to get through.
|"Tasmania" is for sale at the moment, but seems very expensive.|
Had we left Cooks Wharf about half an hourearlier I would be tying this in Leighton Buzzard, but with failing light and my eyesight issues, we sensibly decided to stop a lock and a couple of miles short.
