Today is 1 June, gloriously warm and sunny and Iron Butterfly has been spruced up and ready to show herself to the world.
In other words a perfect day to start our Summer 21 voyage. Setting off from Dunchurch Pools Marina south of Rugby we are hoping to get to our home city of York via Manchester, Lancaster and Leeds then returning to Dunchurch for early September.
We had an uneventful passage through the 3 locks at Hillmorton and 11 miles later have moored up in the countryside near Brinklow somewhere between Rugby and Coventry. (See picture above). I think a bottle of red wine is in order sat on the cruise deck on the stern this evening!
