We were last here on August 9th 2009, and that was for the second time last year.
We spent yesterday on our mooring in the middle of nowhere, and set off for Stoke Bruerne this morning. It was another lovely morning, with the wind easing a little. Got here about 12.30, having ascended the first 5 locks alone, but meeting 2 boats going down at each lock, so at least they were ready for us. We decided that it was cider o’clock, so we went to ‘The Boat’, and had lunch.
We will stay here tomorrow and then head for Blisworth Marina on Monday morning, and that will be the end of our travels for 2010 – apart from maybe the odd few days out during the winter.
