It was with mixed emotions we left Paddington Basin. We were excited because Ian’s mum and dad had arrived and they would be spending the next two weeks with us, it is the first time we have seen them since we set off in March. Unfortunately we have had to leave Windsong behind, Rog is still in hospital and we hope for a speedy recovery for him, Pip has managed to get into a marina, so at least we have peace of mind for her. It did seem strange as we left not to have them following behind us.
We cruised the Regents Canal just as far as Camden market and then returned to Little Venice and back towards Kensal Green.
