Onto Ivinghoe after a quiet weekend

We moored up for the weekend and made the most of it like we always do.. We did remove all the interiors of the cupboards and relined them, cleaning all the dust out, which seems to get everywhere.. We watched all the sport on the telly including Rugby, Athletics, Football and Grand Prix. We did manage to go to the Grove Lock pub and grab a Sunday lunch, and even though it was just over the canal we got soaked by a downpour..
We left on the Monday and planned to leave early, but didn't wake up till 8.00am, so left at 9.00am..
We soon got to Church Lock and took our time as it was so quiet.
We then made it up to Slapton Lock and Al managed to do the hovering through Derwent6 on this section.. It was also handy that a boat was coming out as we arrived.
We then pulled up on the water point and topped up the tank which only took 20 minutes.
It was then on the long straight past the glamping huts to Holton Lock where we met another boat coming out.

then we did Ivinghoe locks, with the sunshine still giving no warning as to the rain in the afternoon..
We moored in a lovely spot with the hills in the background giving us a lovely view..

We had some lunch and then it just got a bit colder so we snuggled inside watching the athletics in the afternoon and then the football in the evening..
