May Day Bank Holiday trip to Whitchurch (Friday 29/4/2016)

Engine reading at end of day: 179.1hr Miles:3.5 Locks:5

Andrew solo trip to Whitchurch. Got to Swanley Bridge Marina around 15:30 after stop at Tesco for supplies. Filled water tank and emptied ash-can. Had hoped that would not be needing fire by this point in the year but still cold and windy...

Out of marina about 16:20. Through Swanley Locks and Baddiley Locks solo without problems. Amazing how quickly working locks solo gets you into canal mode. Work just disappears! Cold with a little light rain.

Nice quiet mooring near Bridge 18 (Starkey's Bridge). Beer and chicken wings for dinner. Read "Still Alice" - remarkable book!
