Just a short catch up blog to log our very enjoyable cruise to Tixall Wide and back. We had a lovely time in the company of mum and dad and we were very lucky with the weather.

We just managed to moor at Tixall Wide, it is always a popular spot. Ready for our return journey, surprisingly the weather was getting hotter every day. We certainly chose the right week.
