We didn't have a good night so was up early and thought we might as well just get through the tunnel. We left at 7.15am and crept up to the entrance and fired up the lamp on the front of Derwent6. We were surprised to see loads of extra new moorings right up to the winding hole by the tunnel.
With the water like a mirror we made our way up to the Northampton Arm.
There were at least six moorings on the 14 days moorings here, so we can only assume that there must be a CaRT warden coming through today, these are normally chocker!
Al lit the fire to warm us both up and then we had some lunch and then Del set about chopping some wood for the front locker as a cold spell was due over the weekend. The funny thing is the weather had warmed up while he was doing it.. So now loaded with kindling again and the locker full of Silver Burch and Oak we were good to go, but Del's aching bones weren't.
After sitting on the sofa for an hour he couldn't move, nothing a nice shower can't sort out with some soft tracky bottoms, the football, and a long cool beer in front of the fire. Ahhhhh! Just love this life!
