We left Gunthorpe at 9.00am in again warm sunshine. The wind had picked up a bit, but it was quite nice to keep you cool.
Another boat left in front of us and headed off into the distance, but Derwent6 was set at 1400 rpm and we wasn't going any faster.
All on our own we exited the lock and made our way up to Holme Lock.
We moored on the pontoon and waited for the green light.
We left the lock not happy bunnies wondering what we would find when we moored up, but the weather and the cruising soon put a smile back on our faces..
It was only a couple of miles before we headed off the Trent and onto the Beeston canal at Meadow lock.
It felt nice to be back on the quaint canals twisting and turning under bridges again..
We reached the Town lock of Nottingham and again went through with the same boat, alongside a few onlookers..
