Ashby Peace

This is today's view from my loo. We are in the farmland of the Ashby Canal area and the sheep are mooching about. It's a lovely, quiet canal with few boats passing, few walkers, no cyclists and in fact very little happening at all!

It's a bit of a relief after some exciting times at Mancetter. I love that area and in particular the choice of wonderful walks. This is where we were moored...

And the woods looked like this mostly!

However, I had been lulled into a false sense of security by Bonny, who had been angelically behaved since we started our cruise. So, on our third walk I thought I'd let her have a little play in the woods and let her off the lead. Big mistake! I won't bore you with the whole story but suffice to say, having run off through the woods, across several fields, through a junkyard and onto a golf course, she was caught two and a half hours later by a young man walking his Staffie.

I can't tell you how relieved I was to get her back!

So after collapsing for the rest of Tuesday, we set off for the Ashby Canal the next morning. I managed to water up and do some shopping in Nuneaton on the way through. Now we are moored on a scrap of Armco near Burton Hastings. Bonny is lead bound for the foreseeable future, but as there are brilliant new walks to explore every day, it's not as bad as all that!
