Just in time!

Woke up to pouring rain and thought we won't be moving today, but when we got up at 8.30am there were some blue bits in the sky. So it was pull the pins as we made our way up to Leighton Buzzard. We made good progress passing the new marina which will be selling diesel by the way, and then on to Grove Lock and then into the town centre. We started to get a few spits so we never took any chances and moored up. Al had just enough time to go and do some food shopping while Del set up the TV and washed the gunwales, before it rained cats and dogs. It was just fab listening to the rain smashing against the roof and watching the smoke from the chimney. As it started to ease we thought it best to stretch our legs. So we walked into Leighton Buzzard for a look around. It was nice with all the Christmas lights on in the wet and we were surprised at all the nice shops they had. We got a small axe for kindling and some saw blades and Al got her stickers for her last Christmas cards she's making. Then the heavens opened again and we got a bit wet getting back to Derwent6, but when we opened the doors it was like a furnace on board...Nice!

In the evening we just chilled out with a pizza and a beer and a good film....
