The Cruise of the Dondevoy

    


Stratford-upon-Avon in three days! Everyone says it is impossible, but I will try it - indeed, I must, for I am meeting my sister Sarah there on the thirteenth.

So, I set off early in the morning, not paying much attention to scenery, but concentrating on the job in hand. Stupidly, I let myself be talked into spending an hour at a pub near Nuneaton after breaking a drive pin, and the whole thing slowed me down, so that after negotiating the flight of eleven locks at Atherstone, I was obliged to carry on well after dark in order to reach Tamworth, where I moored just above the top lock.
