We are back

hi all sorry we have not posted on our blog for a while but we have been busy, as you know we went and done some WRG weeks but before we went to the camps my ex boss called me and asked if i like some work so we went down to Reading for 10day  i helped out at playhatch on a 360 machine
we came back to boat for a few days before heading of to Cromford for our first week of WRG camp ,we spend the week building spill weir , we had a good week and enjoyed it .I did not have any photos this time as the camera i took broke , after a week at cromford we headed over to the Chesterfield canal for another week of WRG camp  this week we would be at Staveley basin doing work on the footbridge which we  started building  at Easter, again this was a really good camp and good company , one night we went on a boat trip on the Chesterfield canal which was good fun .We were only going to do one week at Chesterfield but Steve who was leading week two asked us to stay and help out which we did and very much enjoyed it,  the second week we worked on the new lock being built . we got back to the boat on Saturday 1st of Sept and was glad to move the next day we headed for Marple as we needed water after filling up we went round the corner onto the Peak forest canal and moored up, Monday we headed of towards Furvess vale then Tuesday we went down to Bugsworth basin as Tina had to go to Tesco as the cupboards we bare , it took two trips to fill up with food ,
 looking down onto Bugsworth basin
Then Chris our son called and ask if his mum could go down and give him a hand so Tina went down to Thatcham for a long weekend and we stayed at Bugsworth basin , Tina came back on Tuesday so Wednesday we heading to Furvess Vale and moored up there ,Thursday we got the bus to Macclesfield to go and see if we could see the Tour of Britain bike race got to see Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish took us four hours to get there my bus and they all went pass us in 20 Min's put it was worth it
