Can you believe it!! no ice and no rain, quick untie the ropes and lets get off.
We left the marina this morning after doing some small jobs like cleaning the brasses. We then filled with water and set off towards Foxton. We needed to have a pumpout, but the marina wasn't open, so we thought we would try the manual pumpout but guess what.....that didn't work. So we will have to be a bit careful about how we use the toilet!!!!!! Another job for Fernwood..
We passed Mo And Vanessa on n.b Balmaha at Foxton with a quick toot and a wave.
We got to the bottom lock at Foxton and picked up some provisions like bread and coal, and then set off up the locks. It took us about a hour and quarter to get to the top lock, but it was very easy (or so Al tells me) When we got to the top Al was taking a picture of the nice horse and then dropped her locker gloves in the canal. A good bit of reversing was required :-), but we managed to collect them.
We then moved on to bridge 59 and thought we had done enough for the day, so picked a garden with a nice view and moored up.
