On Sunday as I published my previous post to the blog our Apple MacBook Pro had a 'dickie-fit', the screen went haywire and then went white! Kaput!! What was I now going to do?
I have an iPad but it has no facility to accept photos from my camera's memory card so I can't use my camera either! Oh, bugger!! I'll have to use the iPad to take my pictures (I have to admit I find it rather strange seeing people carrying an iPad around snapping pictures, they sure so cumbersome!). I had assumed that I would be able to post on the blog using the full-blown Blogger application, but of course it was not that easy! George solved my problem for me by finding the app for mobiles, brilliant. Then I had to learn to use it and you'll see from this post that I've not got it quite right yet! To start with I'm a 'touch-typist', so this one finger malarkey is driving me nuts; secondly I can't alter the picture sizing or adjust the format of text, so you'll have to forgive the look of my posts until I can get back to a proper machine! .....
Anyway yesterday morning .....
we left our mooring we left our mooring at about nine thirty and descended Shepperton Lock
Under the M3 and passing the start of the Basingstoke Canal
It took another two hours to get to our destination for the night at Pyrford, we were exhausted!
We expected a challeng and we're certainly having one so far .... It's taken us nearly 5 hours to do 5 miles and 5 locks - one lock mile per hour!
If I hadn't hurt myself we'd have had a meal here last night. Not to worry .... On the way back perhaps!
Sorry about the underscore, I've not got a clue where it came from or how to get rid of it!
So, that's it for now, I'm going to press 'publish'... fingers crossed, here we go!
