January : a snowy month tucked up in the marina.
March : I waved off the other Winter moorers and flew off to Lake Garda in Italy for a few days with Claudia and her daughter Tamara.... returning to Heathrow to meet Mick as he flew in from Australia.
April : Off we went! It was a very cold and windy start to our cruising. Fradley... Fazeley... Hawkesbury... Napton... just to name the junctions.
May : one of our favourite canal villages; Stoke Bruerne.... a surprisingly enjoyable cruising through Milton Keynes... a visit to the Crick Boat Show.
June : our birthday month was one of the best...... we cruised right into London and then out along the mighty Thames.
July : we will always remember July for the Summer heat while moored in Banbury.
August : a short break to Tenby in Wales. Then we tackled the Hatton flight and cruised our way into Birmingham.
September : we had a visit from Jen and Jude... our neighbours from home. The other highlight of the month was being moored in the basin at Stratford upon Avon.... magical.
October : we survived Tardebigge... had a visit from Anthony and Leanne... finally made it to the Black Country Museum... and enjoyed our cruise up the Shroppie.
November : we ticked the Anderton Boat Lift off our list... started heading for the marina... and sadly, we lost Mick's mum.
December : a catch up with the Winter moorers from last year... and Christmas in the Cotswolds.
