The Need for Feed

We felt the need to move this morning as we heard the weather is turning again and we needed water. We also needed shopping provisions and a change of scenery. So Del turned Derwent6 round with frost still on the roof while Al got rid of some rubbish and waited for Mr Tesco. Del pulled up on the water point and just as we got the hose in Tesco's turned up. So loaded with water and shopping we set off through the tunnel. We met four boats on the way through and followed another which did get hit by one of them....we were lucky!!! We linked up with this boat down through the locks which made things a lot easier. At the bottom lock we met up with Andy and Hilary off n.b The Maisibert, but couldn't stop as it was too busy and we wanted to get out of the village and into the countryside. It was lovely cruising in the sunshine and it was nice to be moving again. We got moored up by 2.00pm and had some Mexican fajitas in the cratch. We spent the rest of the day reading and wood hunting and enjoying the sunshine......

I was wondering whether the recent drought restrictions will start to affect the canals one late spring arrives. (I know summer is usually monsoon season now so am sure once August is over we will be feeling wet).
