Wow it was so windy last night and the cat was going mad, so not much sleep for us.. Tooty ended up sleeping with us as we think he might have been a bit scared.. This cat is like having a child!
When we all surfaced in the morning it was a lovely clear blue sky and the sun was streaming through the windows.. Funny but Tooty didn't want to move then, snuggled up in the duvet..
On looking outside, Derwent6 was covered in leaves and twigs, and a clean up mission had to take place..
We planned to move today, and after a long chat with a fellow boater, it was time to set off..
It was lovely in the sunshine but the weather soon turned cloudy and colder as we headed towards Hinckley..
We had no problems as there was now plenty of water in the cut due to last nights weather and we soon passed the Triumph Factory.
Here is our view.. and then Tooty's view..
This canal is so quaint when you get out into the countryside..
We had to post a couple of letters so after a cup of tea and some lunch, we set off towards the local village.. There is a lot of history at Burton Hastings with it's 14th Century church.
