Yes we are still boating but since Sept last year I have been awaiting another cardioversion my 3rd and for a small operation on a trigger finger. This getting older lark is a pain in the everything! As I had said that I would come in for the ops whenever required we couldn't go on long trips. So a 2 week trip to the Ashby Canal in September, back home for an appointment and then a trip to the US in October. The US trip was to New England to see the New England autumn colours which were fabulous. I eventually had the trigger finger done in mid December and the cardioversion in Jan 2017.

|The power end not looking too bad but does show the size of the rudder which makes the tiller a little heavy but she does hold a course well|
A few photographs of our trip to the Ashby Canal last September.

|Our very pleasant overnight mooring on the Ashby just before Burton Hastings and the very sharp bend|

|I had a bit of deja vue as we approached nb Yavas , from a distance it looked just like BB- you do not see many black boats on the waterways.|
|How about this for a different bird house|
and finally one picture of the colours in New England
