It was a cold night and we were glad of the fire. When we looked outside we could see we had a frost which at least took the mud away. We had breakfast but blew out coffee as we had arranged to meet Keith and Ann off n.b.Oakfield at the coffee shop at Clifton marina. We made the most of the time as we took a load of washing up there and got rid of our rubbish on the way. We used their commercial washing machine which does twice the load we can on Derwent6 and in half the time.
It's very cosy in the coffee shop with nice fires going and very nice coffee..They also do some very nice cakes, not good for our diets we are on at the moment! We put the world to rights as always and then said our goodbyes. We had plans to move tomorrow and wouldn't be back to this area till next winter. We didn't know when we would be seeing Keith and Ann again so it was quiet emotional, we have enjoyed winter round this part of the country.
We got back to Derwent6 and then set about getting ourselves organised for the next few days. The day started cold but bright, but in the afternoon it got very windy and ended up snowing. It tried to lay but then it turned to sleet and then rain which got rid of the snow. It is very cold again and we feel the need to move now, all we need now is for the wind to stop, so we can hit the locks tomorrow.
