We had been battered about in the winds overnight but we still managed a bit of a lay in. We had some bacon butties before we decided to set off again back into Welford.. It was Sam and Tanya's last day with us and we had to get them back to their car...With a tricky maneuver we managed to turn Derwent6 into the arm with the help of the wind.
When we got to the lock the crew were out in force..
Windlass in hand Sam opened the paddles and Tanya opened the gates.
We were lucky as when we winded at the end of the Welford arm, the wind was sheltered and we turned very easily. We reversed back into our favourite mooring.
Al had cooked chicken and sweet potato and we had a lovely lunch before we had to say our goodbyes to Sam and Tanya. It was lovely having them and they were good company and good fun.. Thanks both of you!!
We then walked up to Pat ( Del's mum) and Keith, as it is Keith's Birthday on Sunday and dropped off a little something, with a cup of tea of course.. We said our goodbyes and made our way back to Derwent6.
We were going to move again this afternoon as we are a bit Welforded out but we decided to go tomorrow now.. Weather Pending!!
