After our long stint, we thought it would be good to stay put for a couple of days.. The weather didn't look good as the winds were going to reach 80mph, not good for boats.. It turned out to be a good move with our plans, but the rain we had made things a bit awkward. Del was going to have a go at the engine, but needed light in the hatch to help see what he was doing. Al had planned a trip down to Sevenoaks in Kent to see Sarah, who was also bringing our post and the rest of Del's Birthday cards. A big thank you to everyone for the cards and pressies!
The following day was clear skies at last and when we looked at the future forecast we thought we had better move. We left at 8.30am and went through Cosgrove lock with no problems..
We then got to Stoke Bruerne via its twists and turns to get there.
This meant that after we were done all the locks were against us, but it was a nice day and we caught him up at the top, we could have saved so much water..
We picked up a bit of wood at the last locks and then headed towards the tunnel..
We did pass these two CaRT guys putting the signs on the mooring posts Yes! you did read right, two guys. One to hold the sign, and one to put the screw in.. They were fitting the new logo signs, the ones that they were only replacing when they needed to.. and also an electric over head cable sign.
Ahhh it was lovely just to sit and warm up again smelling the cottage pie Al had also made going along.. Blisss!!!
