Day 13: Paddington - Uxbridge

18 miles, 0 locks

A very short day! We were expecting a visit from James's family so just wanted to make it out of London to a nice quiet mooring. We stopped at Alperton to meet them, where there is lots of parking at the Sainsbury's there as well as good moorings.

I had made a Victoria sponge and a version of Rebekah's BCN cookies, using Cadbury's caramel chocolate buttons instead of chocolate chips. Yum. I will post the recipe soon, I promise, as soon as I can get the laptop going again!

They stayed for a few hours and it was nice to catch up. Sam, James's brother has just moved to London and is looking for work in the field of Graphic Design. If you need any design work done, Sam is your man!

After they had headed home, we continued on to Bulls Bridge and Uxbridge, where we are moored just below the locks. We're feeling full after an Indian takeaway, and ready to take on lots of locks tomorrow!

  1. You passed us on your way by but we were too busy with some DIY demolition to leap out and wave. Hope you're having a good trip :)
