Monday (15th July) it was time to move ... back to Abingdon.
We'd left it until 10 o'clock hoping that we'd miss the rush (?) of boats leaving after the weekend but think that everyone had the same thought in mind as it took us two hours before we finally got moored up on the visitor moorings above the lock ... just where we wanted to be.
Tuesday morning at 10 to 5 ... an early start, there's still lots of sorting today and today is our last chance
(remember ... changes afoot?)
We were very lucky to see Chris, fuel boat Merchant as we could do with a top-up of diesel ...
Chris will come and service Still Rockin' after the tanker has filled Merchant's big fuel tank ... the wide beam abreast of him is also waiting for diesel
Here he comes now ...
with the lovely Stanley!
We're expecting visitors this evening and there's still lots to do ... must get on ... watch this space.
