We have finished with our "shake down" cruising in the area nearest to where we bought the boat and we are now ready to spread our wings and begin exploring more of England. Below is a map showing where we will now be heading off to see. We will be take a short portion of the Oxford Canal until it intersects with the Coventry Canal and then on to Coventry. After that the plan is to somewhat retrace our rout and head towards Fradley Junction with stops along the way to explore Tamworth, Atherstone, etc. A side trip up the Ashby Canal and back down may also be on the agenda. We are making this up as we go along, one of the beauties of retirement.
The map below shows the area of our shakedown cruising in the area around Rugby, Braunston and Napton. Today we are in Rugby for some charity shop purchases (another blanket, etc. ) and then we will head north on the Oxford Canal towards Coventry.
Hope this gives you some idea of where we have been, are, and will be. Either that or I have totally muddied the waters and you have no idea at all. :)
