16 miles, 2 locks
Today we set off on what will be nearly two months of boating, as we go South to London for our wedding and then turn around to set off to our new home in Bollington.
Last night was our leaving party which was a bitter sweet, but joyful occasion on the Georgina, the trip boat James has steered for the past 2 years. So many of our Cambridge friends showed up to see us off, it was really emotional! (Thanks everyone we will miss you)
This morning we filled up with diesel and set off through town, waved off by many of the boaters.
We stopped for a farewell lunch with the Pippins and then had a sunny cruise out to Ely.
It was very busy but we tied up alongside another narrowboat. We enjoyed ice creams and pizza in the sunshine and when we got back there was room behind to single out when another boat left.
