We left Kingswood Junction a little later than planned this morning, due to not waking up as early as usual, but we were still on the way by 9 am, scuttling to get going in front of a boat which was filling the lock behind us! It was a day of sunshine and showers. We met Dianne and Peter on nb PlanB again, going in the opposite direction, and also Lindsey and Paul on nb Teapot, who Karen and Ian travelled with after we had parted company last summer, and we met at Karen’s 50th birthday party in the winter. We had a very heavy rain shower about half an hour before we planned to moor, Rog got drenched, but the sun had come out again by the time we got to Wootten Wawen and moored up. After lunch we went to the Yew Tree Farm Shop and Craft Centre just a short walk away.
