A walk with a view

Lovely day this morning so decided to go out for a walk. It was great to see all the gorse coming out which made it very spring like. We walked up to Napton church which dates back to the 13th Century building and has one of the best outlooks in the country. What a nice place to get married. The church was open and we had a good look around. After this we continued into the village till we came to the village green with a sycamore tree. Behind this tree was The Crown pub with it's doors wide open..so rude not to drop in and grab a couple of pints of IPA and a packet of crisps. We were a bit annoyed we missed the live band they had last night, but we will know next time. We then went on to the village stores, which was well stocked, and picked up a few bits before making our way back to Derwent6.

This afternoon the clouds began to form, so we decided to go through some clothes on the boat which we haven't used and will be making room for some more summer clothes.

Just a note to say about the water gauge which we calibrated...it seems to be working fine now. Also the water leak in the bilge seems to be sorted as Fernwood have now put in a leak off pipe, so it now drains into the canal. As for the prop noise! Watch this space, but it is in hand. or so we are lead to believe...
