 These are some pictures of some of the original buildings from the original canal use after the restoration of the area.



 This afternoon we took the dogs where the Cromford canal stops and where in the near future it will be reinstated.
Meanwhile Cassie and Ruby took a dip in the existing waterway coming out not smelling their best.

 We have made it back to the boat and there was a fantastic sunset tonight.
 What with the decorating at Hilary's cottage and carrying out some work at Bailey Bridge its time to go to the boat for a well earned rest.
 On Monday we celebrated Claire and Craig's 30th birthday at T.G.I Friday in Braintree.

James and his dog Andy visited today and as the weather was so great that we decided to enjoy the sun and eat our lunch outside.
Meanwhile I have completed the decorating at Hilary's cottage.

 I have been so busy that I have not posted for a long while so here goes.
We have paid a visit to Hilary's cousin Carol, Phil and Jodie the dog several weeks ago.

 Tomorrow would have been Mum's birthday so we visited the Crematorium and put flowers near the memorial Plaque.
Also tomorrow The Maisibert is officially nine years old.

This week I have started the decorating at Hilary's cottage by covering the Artex between the beams with plaster.
Last Saturday we had an afternoon with Maisie and Poppy taking them to Crazy Kids
