A hazy day to Weedon
We woke up this morning with a frost on the roof of Derwent6, but we were determined to move on today. We passed through the last two locks at Stoke Bruerne. As we approached the Blisworth tunnel a couple were having trouble trying to get their headlight to work. So we asked if they wanted to follow us through and they did, but we had to go so slowly and showed the way with all the torches we had. It took us a hour to get out to the outside but they were very grateful. We then pushed on up to Gayton junction (one day we will get to go down here) and then on to Bugsbrooke. The weather has still been great for this time of year, as last year we had sleet in our faces and were soon iced in, but we had to light the fire in the afternoon. Can you spot the rabbit sticking out of the bridge hole... We passed through Heyford Wharf and made it to Weedon, where we moored up with a nice sunset. We then had problems trying to get an Internet signal which has never happened here before. With a lot of messing about we gave up in the end and we watched the football to see Arsenal win their Champions league table.
