On to Hawkesbury

We had no more trouble overnight and awoke refreshed on Saturday ready for the next leg of our journey. After a delicious plateful of bacon and eggs we set off just before nine o’clock. Needlessly, I kept checking the control panel but the new engine was behaving perfectly as we made our way north on the Oxford canal. It is difficult to put into words the feeling of freedom that boating brings and on this occasion that freedom was enhanced by the feeling that our mechanical problems were well and truly behind us. We each showered along the way making the best use of the hot water being generated. There was a light rain shower just after one o’clock but by that time we had tied up after making the turn at Hawkesbury.
