Al was up early and went to Sainsbury's for another big shop. She called Del at the tills and he helped her carry the bags back.
We got to Holme Lock where we caught up with another narrowboat. We pulled into opposite sides and the very nice lockkeeper let us both down.
We were let out first as the other boat was mooring up, and we were cleared down to Stoke Lock. In the distance we could see the traffic lights which were red which means you can't enter and must moor up. These turned quickly to red-green which means the lock is getting ready, then the light turned green and the gates opened, perfect timing!
We then found a nice mooring on the back of one of the pontoons at Gunthorpe, but it soon got busy here.
