We cruised passed one of our favourite spots and soon got to the very wet Crick tunnel. We then reached Crick where we were surprised to see Edwards restaurant had been changed to The Moorings bar and restaurant. We stopped and Al got some provisions from the Co-Op while Del wiped down the roof to stop all those white bits you get after going through a tunnel.
Just as we pushed off Jo and Keith on n.b. Hadar came round the corner on their coal run. We knew we would be seeing them later in the week so we quickly arranged a meet and went on our way. We still had a four hour cruise ahead and the weather was getting windy and cloudy and it was also feeling a lot colder again. It just seemed as though we had this section of canal all to ourselves, it was lovely. We were quite sad to see five sheep had fallen into the canal and we had to maneuver Derwent6 through them. :-(
We were getting quite weary by the time we moored at Welford and it was nice to get in by the warmth of the log fire. With glowing faces and exhausted from our six hour cruise, we chilled for the rest of the day with one of Al's Friday night Curry's.
