The Cruise of the Dondevoy

    


After work today, I walked back to the boat with Mick, and after sending him to the boatyard to buy half a gallon of petrol, we set off in the direction of Northampton. We got as far as the next lock, with the motor alternately spluttering and roaring into life, but I could not start it again after locking through. After checking the plugs and trying again, we got a tow back to Billing where I was in time to buy food from the shop about a mile away. Mick then hitched back to Northampton, and I spent a quiet evening sitting in the boat.
