The nights are drawing in though and there is certainly more of a chill in the air of an evening :lol:

I've just come back from 15 days on the T&M and was pleasantly surprised how quiet it was sometimes.

My longest trip out so far and I didn't want to come back.

I really envy the lucky ffffffellows who cruise for months at a time but I still can't see myself as

Strange that?

It must be a bricks and mortar secure feeling sort of thing!!!!!!!!!

Is it me or do other people feel the same thing about moving from dry land and onto a boat? :lol:

Oddly enough I mentioned this to SWMBO and she said exactly the same thing...........she agreed with me :lol: .......still in shock!



Quite the opposite for us. We bought our 1st boat in July, spent 2 weeks traveling from Yorkshire and can't wait for the day when we can move aboard.
We spend 4 nights a week on it and it now feels like home.
Hate returning to bricks and mortar on a Monday morning.

Having recently bought our boat from Whilton Marina, we have to get it back to Droitwich during the Christmas holidays, so it will be a bit of a slog for us. We have a week to do it before the locks at Stoke and Aston are serviced. Looking forward to it though, our "maiden voyage".

At least is looks like there won't be the big freeze that they predected (wrongly as usual) a few weeks ago. You might get a bit wet though. Hope it goes well and I'm sure you'll love it. I hope I will be in a similar situation very soon.
