Beware of the Wasps
We left Stockton flight at 9.30am and it was Thomas's turn to stay on board Derwent6. We made our way through Bascote Locks and at Wood lock there was one gate out of action due to a Wasps nest inside the lock gate. This took us out into the country before hitting Leamington Spa. We've got to say it must be a least 10 years ago when we last went through here, and we were pleasantly surprised. It was very clean and well kept with new houses backing onto the canal and new towpaths. There is even a new Lidl's with good moorings. We then got to the Saltisford Arm and managed to get in by breasting up the two boats.The first night here is free and then it' s four pounds a night and as we want to take all the children to Warwick castle tomorrow we will be staying a couple of nights. Cliff had a casserole going all day on the slow cooker and we all sat down with the sun setting on the bow of both boats. A nice night to the perfect day!!!!
