Journey’s end

Yet another sunny morning greeted us as we awoke in Ricksmanworth. We showered and then had breakfast before walking into town again. Sue took a wander around the shops while I sat and read the paper in the local Weatherspoons. We were re-united at around half past twelve when Sue had a coffee and then we returned to the boat taking in the local canal centre along the way.

We made the short hop to the local Tesco store on the other side of the canal and stocked up on a few essential groceries. It was almost half past one when we started out on our travels but the weather was still lovely so it was a very enjoyable experience. We carried on down through the locks until we passed through Black Jack’s lock after which we turned around just above Wide water lock. That was it, our journey had come to an end, Phoenix III was now pointing north ready for her trip home.

We tied up and after a celebratory gin and tonic each we fed the swans and then wandered down to the local pub, the Horse and Barge at South Harefield.
