On our way to Belgium (nearly)!

Well, firstly apologies for not writing on here for a month or two. We were off Anticus during August more than we were on her! This included a wonderful cruise around the Western Isles of Scotland on the magnificent Hebridean Princess. Wonderful new friends made from Nicola’s extended family, and the chance to roam around the bridge and engine room of a proper ship! What’s not to like?

Anyway, September was spent on the lower / mid Thames and getting ready for the annual Piper Boats show at Henley. If you click on the link there is plenty of information there.

Today, 4 October, I am sat at Queenborough on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. The wind is gusting quite strongly hence the reason I am not getting any closer to Calais for a few days. Fingers crossed, Monday is looking ok. Let’s hope so.

Yesterday Alan of Piper Barge ‘Plan B’ and I successfully brought Anticus from Teddington Lock here to Queenborough. It was both of our first time on the tidal Thames! It was a fantastic, if long day. Here are some of the things we saw on our way.

  1. Glad you’re waiting for storm Lorenzo to pass! I was walking Lola along the cliff top this morning and it was sure blowing strong! Safe trip when you finally shove off!
