Satellite Dish.

For the last few days we have had no television. The reason for this is because while looking at the map book I ran into a Hawthorn bush. While trying to free myself from this bush it ripped of our Ariel and it dropped in the canal never to be seen again.
So today we had a satellite dish fitted.We had been thinking about doing this anyway so now we had to act. It was supplied and fitted by Travelsat, who came to where we were moored and fitted it in the morning by Martyn the owner of Travelsat. He also supplied a little box and a compass to help find the satellite when we move. Apparently it is always in the south east.
We went for a walk this afternoon, through Middle wood and back to the canal, a nice circular walk. Tonight we are staying at the mooring at High lane(see picture)then move on tomorrow.


  1. Just discovered your blog and look forward to following you. I'm an ex-liveaboard, now a land-lubber. Had a car trip to Marple yesterday, visiting the top locks. Beautiful in the sunshine.
    I don't envy you with today's rain. Keep blogging.
