Derwent6 is rocking
Del was feeling much better today but was still not 100%, so we thought we would have a easy day just having fun on Derwent6. We played a couple of games, sung a few songs and turned up the music cracking the ice around Derwent6 to Bon Jovi. We did have a bit of a spring clean as the fire had made the boat quite dusty, and we also sorted out some clothes we didn't wear last year, so we can't be needing them. We also took the rubbish to the refuse point. The Cook coal boat came through breaking the ice up to the top Buckby lock. They must have turned at Braunston as they normally go down to Stockton. There has been boat movement here today, but not on the Leicester Arm section as the ice is too thick. Another boat then headed off through the tunnel, before it closes for two months on Monday. We have just had a light sprinkle of snow today and more is expected tomorrow, so we have the water container at the ready in case we need it. After a candlelit dinner we just crashed out with some telly... a very relaxing day really!!!!
