I was in two minds whether to venture out with Hallmark on the Hillingdon Canal Club's winter cruise. But the weather was fine and there was no snow and ice was about!
In the end 7 boats made the trip.
Hallmark cruised with Mike aboard NB Solveigs Song. Here is Mike at Uxbridge Lock
The trip up the four locks to Harfield was slow as Mike still seemed to have gearbox trouble. We moored just below Black Jacks turning round at Troy Cut
The club had booked a meal at The Old Orchard, a great pub with amazing views over the lakes and gravel pits surrounding the canal
After a good meal and a few beers I left for Uxbridge quiet early on the Sunday morning travelling with Peter and NB Ehawee.
