Our return Cruise

We had a bit of a lay in and then set off at 10.30am from Onley.. It was a nice slow cruise and two boats were in front of us.. We got to Hillmorton Locks and one boat had turned, the other guy was a single hander and we helped him down.. We passed this guy going well up the towpath and it made us smile..
We soon got to the bottom lock and it was steady cruising again onto Clifton and Brownsover which we've got to say was very quiet..
 In fact we didn't even see any other boats out and about which made it easy for us..
We pulled into the marina and in a tricky wind managed to get Derwent6 onto the pontoon.. After an hour tiding up and getting our stuff off we set off for Kent..
It had been a lovely few days together taking Derwent6 out and blowing off the cobwebs.. We are so looking forward to the next one..

We wish you well. We're going through a similar period, but hope to finally be back on board next week. The joy is that the canals will still be there waiting for us, and eventually for you.
All the best
