Taking a blogging summer break

Keith and I have enjoyed a fantastic time at the Wendover Canal Festival. The weather certainly brought the public out. We got to meet up with many friends and made some lovely new friends as well. Unfortunately because we have a very poor signal here in Bulbourne, I have been unable to post photographs or blog since getting to Bulbourne. Which has made us come to a decision about blogging over the summer.
We have decided to take a summer break from the blog. We have been blogging now for 5 years and feel a break is needed. We are going cruising with friends Elaine and David on NB Patience to Stratford-upon-Avon and want it to be blog free. We are not giving up on the blog completely, we just feel that we need some time out.
We both wish you a wonderful summer no matter where you are and we will post again when we feel the urge. Thank you to all of those people who read our blog and post messages, please do not abandon us as we will be back.

P.S. Keith took part in the RYA/IWA Helmsman's Certificate yesterday and passed along with the other 3 boatman taking the course. They have had to take this as all commercial craft have to be operated or under supervision by someone who is qualified to operate the boat. Even the examiner felt it was ridiculous as, in his own words, he reckoned Keith could teach him more about boating and canals, but such is life and red tape!

Enjoy your break, I can certainly understand the desire to be blog free. We hope to meet up with you again on our journey's around the cut.

Hi Keith & Jo
Have a wonderful summer - we will miss reading your blog, but understand that it gets a bit of a tie. I'm sure we'll keep up with your exploits via Facebook, Jo, or are you having a break from that as well?

Sorry to hear you are going to stop blogging, I do hope you reconsider, even if its only a couple of sentences to say where you are and what is happening.
I have enjoyed reading about your travels.

Many thanks for all you lovely messages.
We are not giving up blogging completely. We are just taking a break over the summer, whilst we spend some quality time with our friends.
I dare say if the urge takes me I may put a couple of lines to say where we are, but at the moment I feel I want a break for a while.
