first week

Friday 18th
One week since we got our boat and it is going good we left Antsy about 9 and travelled on the Oxford canal to Hawkesbury junction and then on to the Coventry canal went through Nuneaton pass the start of the Ashby canal we come back and do that later day, had a shock about the about of plastic bottles in the canal here went over something in the cut that was big not sure what it was!!!!! We carried on to Hartshill and moored up for the night that was 12 miles today. No Friday night take away

Saturday 19th
Woke up to rain but not heavy so we set off from last nights mooring and slowly went towards Atherstone, saw our first kingfisher and heron and then like number 9 bus another kingfisher, stopped just before Atherstone so Tina could go to local shops, the rain had stopped so we went through 11 locks pass Atherstone to a little place called Bradley green where we moored up for the night, set TV up to watch football!!!
