Iris finally reaches her new home

It’s been a while since I posted an update – nearer two months than one, in which time lots has happened on board Iris Abbott, pretty much all…

A first run out on my own

I’ve been around boats for most of my life (I was 7 when we had our first holiday on a canal boat) but Iris is VERY different to anything I’ve handled before, so moving her for the first time was always going to be a big moment.

How can it be a month already?!

I’m not sure where the time has gone, but as I write this it is exactly a month since I boarded Iris Abbott in Northwich and Matt and I brought her down to Acton Bridge.
