Narrowboat AREandARE

From the 2009 & 2010 tantalising tales, traumas and stunning photographs of Barry (photographer) and Sandra (writer) from New Zealand aboard NB 'Northern Pride', to the stories of their 2013 return journey, purchase of 'AREandARE', progress on sustaining their live aboard continuous cruiser lifestyle, and Barry's quest to gain residency and 'Indefinite Leave to Remain' in UK ...

Sick Day

Oh dear

Sandra has a man cold, so isn't up to writing. This may be brief then....
Still here at Barbridge Marina. Had the welding man working on the boat fixing a hole in the gas compartment, and Nigel from marina fixed a couple of minor engine compartment problems. Now just have to get inspector to check it tomorrow then we're off.

View from Pub


Had lunch at Barbridge Inn which is a short walk along the towpath. Put up with Sandra wheezing and grumbling!!! (She didn't want her photo taken)



Took boat for a short trip (about 2 miles) up canal to winding hole (turning point) then back so now facing the right way for tomorrow's exit.



Got New Zealand flag up today (Thanks Deb), so guess people will try and avoid us from now on!
