It was a cold night as we let the fire go out, so one of the first things was to relight it again. This got us up and ready to go, so after some breakfast we decided to go to Braunston on the bus. The bus goes via Daventry and only cost £3.10 return. It is quite a long bus ride though as it goes round the houses a bit. Del wanted to get another door retainer at Midland Chandlers, as he broke one yesterday, and can you believe our luck they only had one left. It is a nice walk from the bus stop via the lambs on the footpath. We got the bus back to Derwent6 and was back on board by 12.30pm. The rain had held off all morning but looked threatening. Del then managed to get the other catch done (learning by his mistakes) just before it absolutely tipped it down. More rain, hurrah!!!
We chilled for the rest of the day watching loads of boats passing in the very wet weather. These new ducklings were loving it in the sunny spots in between.
