We've made it to the end of the world...
Well..nearly the end of the world..:) 2 days travelling through some peaceful canals and rivers, and we're settled in for the night in Wakefield. Kids are MUCH more active than when land-based.....eating loads, and passing out early. We still need to find a way to rise earlier..this morning was REALLY bad :) I was up an hour before everyone..really peaceful on the canal in the morning...we have 400litres of water left, and a toilet which has already been replaced with the spare, which is soon going to be full too...oh...where to empty them....tomorrow the search for that Elsan point is on. Luckily we're moored just round the corner from a Halfords, and I need to buy some oil, spare fuses and ...erm...possibly another toilet storage container. Sorry to harp on about the loo....but it's a real practical priority when you live onboard :) The 400litres of water will probably be finished by midday tomorrow, but there are places to refill along the way. I need to get my 950Watt generator running soon...it started once last month, but hasnt since...hmmm...watch this space :) The layout on the boat is working well. Kids in the front. M and I at the rear. Jac in the middle. Cat has made itself comfortable in the front. At the moment the rear cabin has the desk layout, but later those go under the bed, and the cabin transforms into sleeping quarters. There's a condensation drip on M's feet though, which I need to sort out soon...going to redirect it rather than solve it...Missing our friends and family, but really enjoying the change in pace...(it's faster, yet more relaxing....strange that.) More updates and pics soon.
