Vlog 112a: Zzzzz

This is not a vlog. Consider it a bonus video that I happened to have time to compile and put up as a bit of extra footage. There’s no music, no commentary, no captions – this is all deliberate. It’s just the canal views and the “music” of the wildlife and the engine.

Vlog 112: Diamond Geyser

Here’s a vlog of two more days of cruising up the Avon, from Comberton Quay where the last vlog ended, through Pershore and Evesham, and up to Offenham. I went through a lot of locks, all of which were rather turbulent and one of which had a puzzle to keep you guessing.

Vlog 111: Memory Lane

This is the start of my trip up the River Avon from Tewkesbury to Stratford-upon-Avon. In this episode I leave Tewkesbury and go past three sailing clubs as well as the mooring our family used to use at Bredon, before tackling two ferocious locks and mooring for the night in a tranquil corner of the countryside at Comberton Quay.

Vlog 109: Avon Calling

After 48 hours on the visitor mooring at Netherwich Basin in Droitwich Spa, I reversed my path up the Droitwich Barge Canal and headed back out downstream on the River Severn. I went through Worcester, past Upton-on-Severn and into the River Avon at Tewkesbury, having executed dramatic overtaking manoeuvres. battled loose logs and coped with any army of tiny spiders.

Vlog 105: Straight Out Of Compton

My journey down the Staffs & Worcester canal continues, picking up from Compton where I moored at the end of the last vlog, and heading south through Kidderminster and eventually ending up in Stourport. En route I see an unusual butty and get thoroughly whacked on the nose by another boat exiting a lock at an awkward angle.

Vlog 103: An Autherley Big Adventure

High drama in this video as I become a sitting target for oncoming boats, stuck under a bridge when my propellor picks up something large and unpleasant. In journey terms, I come to the southern end of the Shroppie and turn right, heading south on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal.

Vlog 102A: Deja Views

I know it’s not long since the last “not a vlog” but the journey along the Shropshire Union canal was so pretty and so sunny that I couldn’t resist making up another compilation. Get a cuppa, put the video to full screen, sit back and relax to this.
