On up to Harborough

With the sun trying to come out, we pulled the pins and pushed on towards Market Harborough. We were on the hunt for wood as our levels had run low and spotted some just two miles into our journey. We stopped Derwent6 and loaded a few fallen tree trunks onto the roof before heading off and finding a good mooring to cut and saw it all up. We then continued on to Harborough and moored on a recommended mooring from Mo and Ness. We then had lunch and then made our way into town for a quick look around. On the way back we popped in to see Keith and Jo on coal boat n.b. Hadar. (www.narrowboathadar.blogspot.com) Keith has not been well and they have been stuck here for four months with hospital appointments. We were lucky and saw Keith on one of his good days.... We spent a couple of hours with them before heading along the towpath back to Derwent6. It was a very pretty walk and all the houses gardens and trees were all lit up, it was like walking along at the seaside, we just needed fish and chips in hand. In the evening we watched the football and for Al, her Desperate Housewife's.
