Two posts today to make sense of the time disparity and get us close to real time blogging.
We've been watching the weather forecast as you do when you are on a boat. All week the forecasters have been advising of a wet Friday with some winds, not great for boating. So we made plans for an early start for us on this holiday.
Last evening we didn't light the fire as Rachel made a Bahraini and a fruit crumble so the oven was on and that's enough to warm the boat. This morning the alarm went off at 7am and we were moving at 8.05am with about 4 hours planned to get us about an hour away from the Atherstone locks for tomorrow.
It was a cold moody morning with a heavy mist on the canal when we set off. Back doors closed behind which makes the steering position very cosy.
