2020 Cruising starts here
Wednesday 22nd July 2020
Yay - we are off! This year we have decided to record our overninght mooring locations by using the 'what3words' location recorded in the front well deck. Our mooring at Brinklow is 'quilting.districts.skin' if you want to see where Jannock has been since October.
By this time last year we had visited Liverpool and Chester and was on our way to Birmingham - city breaks all round. With all the extra time in dock, Jannock has benefitted, inside and out, with some tlc. Bills all paid and space reserved for next winter we left Brinklow at 10am.
The weather was almost perfect - just a little too breezy to allow for easy manoeuvring between the locks at Hillmorton when numpties can't decide what to do or where they are going. It was a novelty not to have to bob about waiting as boats are queued for locks. This year the Cap'n has been messing about with timelapse videos to record our travels. Hillmorton is at https://youtu.be/mQ6QamRk1Bk for your pleasure.
an early finish at the top of the locks (unspoiled.snaps.handsets) simply to get a take-away Indian meal from Exotica Bengal Quisine up on the shopping parade at Hillmorton. Definitely worth it - an excellent meal as always.
Our take-away order was ready to collect at 6pm, Jannock's bike ensured a speedy delivery (all downhill from the restaurant). We found out tha they will deliver to the towpath if requested.On their desert menu they list a 'Nutella Nan bread' , and on their main menu they have a 'design your own Nan bread' option. They reacted positively to Brenda's request for a 'Peshwari Nutella Nan' and wondered why they hadn't thought of it. She now claims to have invented it. The sun was still out so we decided on an evening cruise to Barby. New mooring location is 'deeper.thing.trick'
