James & Ali popped in before they headed home, to wish the birthday boy ‘happy birthday’ and to bring him a candle to blow out!
Having waved them off we cast off and Storm steered the boat while I walked along the towpath with Max to Waverton. We called in at the post office to post off our boat licence application and then jumped back on board and we motored on to Tiverton where we spent the night just above ‘Iron Lock’.
We tried to contact friends and family but gave up as we couldn’t get a signal for phones or internet.
New Year’s Eve was spent watching our boxed set of ‘Breaking Bad’ whilst taking the neck of Storm’s bottle of whisky.
