Finally made a move from Whitchurch – partly because it was time but mainly because I needed to get water and fuel, and pump out my septic tank. Rufus, my friend’s dog, is staying with me for a week – so we took the car a few miles to the boatyard where I needed to go and then walked back along the canal for the boat. We met one couple who didn’t know about the lock closure and had to reverse their boat about three miles to get to a ‘winding hole’ – not an easy task. Rufus was not entirely at easy with cruising along but soon settled in. Tomorrow we go on to the end of the LLangollen canal – Rufus gets picked up by Ratnavandana – and then I go North – or South – on the Shropshire Union canal.
