44_The Rain in Stone falls mainly on our boat

August 23, 2019

good morning everybody and welcome to
our vlog you join us on a windy day a little bit cloudy cloudy or cos rain
later today we’re in stone yeah yeah we haven’t really had a chance to look
around too much in here we arrived today we arrived Tuesday yeah we arrived
Tuesday we state Wednesday we did what popped into town and did some shopping
yeah emoji yep but we in the afternoon it poured hard so we really didn’t have
chance to look around responded by like – baby yeah be watching Laura tea you
can sponsor us yeah what you digress I do I do
I don’t great all right hurry up yes so we’re gonna move on today because we’re
on a bit of a mission to be honest and so we do have to move today we’re only
going up to Trent them which i think is about two and a half hours crews in time
and about four or five blocks not quite sure I did so much planning yesterday
that I can’t remember now what we’re doing today so I think is that four or
five blocks so just see how our today goes we’ve got to pick up some Walter
diesel and gas yes so we see how to take those all look the song screwed up
Brooke yeah Thomas tonight let’s hope it stays out for a little bit we’ll catch
up with you later for doing you all later
you right moving off ailee’s gone set the
lock so we just come at the first look and
there’s somebody waiting to go in the lock was set in our favor so that was
perfect I’ve walked ahead to the second lock and
there’s a higher boat in it it’s obviously their first lock they’re doing
some training they’re just going down now lot number two for the day yeah that’s pretty deep huh please this is a deep lock
very leaky and it’s just started to rain we were
hoping to more up before it started to rain but it’s like we might be cruising
in the rain for a bit wind is picked up now expecting rain
hits trying to on and off so perhaps just closing the gate of the
locks of the next set of locks these are the mean
knees with locks and there’s there’s three
so that was one I’m just at the second one these gates are open so you can drive
straight in and there’s one straight ahead and
there’s a set of three quite close together Niki gates this one
they’ve all been a bit like that the locks have changed as well these
ones have to ground paddles there’s no gate paddles on this one these ones and
I only just realized that there’s a little turnover bridge there so the
towpath changes to the other side there’s a heron they don’t see very
often the fact was just it’s the backwash isn’t it silly Vey
that’s a strange way of doing the backwash straight off the top of the
the long but that’s what they’ve done okay I’m on me wife you this is a turnover breach it’s wet it’s just ticked down and now it stopped just while we’re in
the lock absolutely one there lots of lovely bluebells out the plymouth feathers injunction with no more this is powerlessness yeah we just Lord up in time before the
hailstones and the thunder and lightning and now it stopped yeah it’s lasted
about what five minutes I suppose yeah so we’re I’m just hear the Thunder we
are Alliston Holliston and we’ve done three miles today eight locks and it
took us three and a half hours but we did stop for we did stop the lung we did stop the Cyndi’s on gas and
services I mean probably just about here the Train that’s just gone past

    Hi just a general observation about narrowboat vlogger's, the ladies are all trim taught and terrific cause they all do the walking and work but the blokes are getting chubby. No disrespect just an observation

    The canal is just beautiful and the quality of your video is top notch. I look forward to seeing the Trent and Mersey at some point.

    Do you have a bowthruster on your boat?

  • Reply Michael W. Salter June 22, 2019 at 6:02 pm

    I love the old brick buildings. Some of the locks are very narrow. I got a little claustrophobic. Very nice photography. As wet as it is, it reminds me of Southeast Alaska, where it rains 364 days a year (or so it seems).
