Don't ask me how, but we managed to get up early and leave at 7.15am. Al helped Del through the swing bridge at Stretton-under-Fosse and then went back to bed for an hour..
We had only passed three boats all day which give us the gaps we needed to get in.. With the sunshine it was a good time to do some polishing while Al finished her book she had been reading..
After working up an appetite, it was a quick shower (and haircut) before we walked into The Greyhound Inn for a bite to eat. The food is still very good here and the menu is still quite large, we recommend it.
