Oct 4, 2020 - Rain, rain and more rain!!

These pheasants, and many more are in the field across from our mooring. I just wonder how long it will be before they start the pheasant shoots. The blurry thing is a squirrel - it ran down the tree as I was taking pics of the phesants and I just managed to catch it before it went up another tree. We've had 3 days of almost constant rain and the rivers are rising and places are flooded. We managed to get a walk into Kintbury yesterday for bread and milk in between heavy showers. It's time to get the wellies out as the tow path is already...

It was a nice sunny day so we sat and watched the bowls for half an hour. Chilton Foliat - and they think we have weird place names in Australia!!!! We walked there the other day and ended up having lunch in the Wheatsheaf. A pizza each (£12 for Tony's and £15 for mine which had a few mushrooms and an egg on, plus a drink each - nearly £40 = AUS $80!!!!!!!!!) this huge tree was just on the outskirts of the village - a rather upper class area! We've now moved out of Hungerford and are half way between there and Kintbury in a nice quiet...

Sep 22, 2020 - Make hay while the sun shines

This is the state of some of the locks along the canal. More water leaking in (or out as the case may be) than going out (or in as the case may be)!!!! We spent a couple of nights at Froxfield which is about 5 miles from Hungerford. Then we decided last night after hearing that the weather is going to turn to rain and wind tomorrow that we should move on today as we needed to have the wheel house down to negotiate some of the lock walkways. We spotted this tree leaning precariously across the canal on our walk the other day, so Tony...

Oct 20, 2019 - Hungerford

Yesterday we wandered into Kintbury Village - quite a large "upmarket" village. It was quite busy inside the church as the ladies were doing all the flower arrangements and there were flowers laying all over the place, so we just got a quick look around. This cute duck house was at the bottom of quite a large house's garden. Moved on to Hungerford today, a much bigger town. This sign attached to the Bear Pub says it all. The ex- fire station is now a hairdressers. These owls are really doing their job!!!! Pigeons everywhere,...
