We were woken by the cat at 3.00am due to the fact that he couldn't get out of the boat as the walls were too high, and if he fell in we couldn't reach him.
We got up at 7.00am in the end and got ourselves ready to go through the lock at 9.00am but it turned out we had got the times wrong and it was 9.30am when the lock was open. Bang on 9.30am the gates opened and then we got the green light.
It was just perfect cruising, clear blues skies, blue water and a slight breeze to keep you cool..
So full up we walked back to Derwent6 fit for nothing! It was football again for us in the afternoon, this World cup can bugger up your time.....
