Here we are moored on the water point by the Barge Inn on the K&A with our friends boat Icarus (thank you Andrew, can’t wait to share the boat build journey with you!) We think Icarus is now on or around the Thames, as I came across these photos on flicker recently.

Sorry about such a poor quality photo, in my defence it is a pre-digital camera, combined with a very early morning and now scanned.
No use hurrying breakfast then, but a leisurely start to the day after lowering the paddles on the bottom gates of the lock in the pound below us, a phone call to British Waterways who had their depot at Caen Hill, and then walking a couple of locks back to get water on its way down to fill the empty pound, before British Waterways took over the task.
