An Early Start

Del woke up at around 6.30am and couldn't get back to sleep, so with Al still in bed he set off through the Braunston Tunnel. It was a good job he did because it was being closed later for some wide beams to go through. Al got woken up as Del was going through the first lock of the six locks at Braunston and we helped a single hander on the way down. We had a quick stop to the shop where we posted a few letters before we headed off again. It was quite busy through the village and we soon got out into the countryside. We passed the new Barby marina which they were getting a move on with. We got to Hillmorton Locks where we had just missed a queue of a hours wait. We got through in less than a hour. After a ten mile cruise we moored just before Rugby where we have good signals. Del went out on his bike in the afternoon while Al sorted out some paperwork and did some reading. In the evening we had a sausage casserole which had been bubbling in the slow cooker all day, and Del then picked some Blackberries for a nice pie to go with it....Yum Yum!!!
In the evening we chilled with a DVD........the nights must be closing in!
