Journey to upgrade

After a day of chilling out and still catching up with jet lag, we set off early today with the intention of going all the way to Hartshill. It was quite cold on the stern deck as we idled along till we got to Rose's narrowboats. Al opened the swing bridge and we were soon on our way..

It was nice to see all the wild life again using the canal like us.

We made our way up to Sutton Stop and filled with water just to keep us full.

We then went through the lock and took the turn onto the Coventry canal and headed north.

We passed the junction with the Ashby and pushed on towards Nuneaton.
We were surprised when we got to Nuneaton to see how things had gone downhill again with the rubbish in the canal and the graffiti on the bridges.
It must be so depressing for the locals with the country not in a good place at the moment.

We were pleased to get through without any prop damage and managed to get to a nice mooring in the middle of nowhere.

Del was soon out doing the brasses and Al sorted out the interior of Derwent6.
We are here to have our new batteries and solar panels fitted so watch this space! Derwent6 is due an upgrade.
