After 13 weeks of self isolating from COVID 19 on Iron Butterfly in the marina at Dunchurch near Rugby, we eventually set off on 21 June 2020 on our Summer 2020 cruise. This year we are heading ‘up north’ and, hopefully, eventually arriving at our home city of York to introduce our northern friends to Iron Butterfly (water shortages allowing).
The first leg of our journey is up the Trent and Mersey and Shropshire Union canals to Chester.
We are currently just south of Stoke on Trent after just over 5 days cruising. We have been blessed with glorious weather and, indeed some days it was just too hot so had to spend mid-afternoons sheltering in the cool under strategically placed trees.
It’s fantastic to be back on the ‘cut’ again and in our beautiful boat which we adore.
