Cambridge here we come!

Just a short one, since I've found some sporadic internet (a rarity in the Fens) and so I will breify update before it goes altogether, and write more when I can!

Basically, yesterday we had the extreme good fortune of being put in contact with some Middle Level Commissioners maintenance men, by the lock keeper at Stanground. They met up with us, bringing their portable arc welder in the back of a van and proceeded to weld our tiller back together! So, we changed our plans and decided not to head for Ramsey but to make for Cambridge, where we could settle in, start working, make some money and then perhaps return to Bill Fen to get the prop shaft and other things fixed. We said our farewells to Jim and Warrior, our faithful companions for two weeks, and headed to March.

So here we are at the tidal lock on the Great Ouse. We'll be in Cambridge by the weekend.
