For those of you who know little or nothing of canal boats, let me make something clear to you. We travelled for around seven hours, including a stop for lunch, but only travelled about twelve miles, from bottom to top of the picture below. The slow pace is all part of the enjoyment, giving us time to look around, and to relax at the helm. If we had had any locks to go through, then it would have reduced the distance travelled in that time by about one mile per three locks.

Today, we awoke early to a beautiful, misty morning. One boat has passed us. It is very peaceful. I can quite get used to this! We will return to the marina today. We have to go into Rugby to collect a rug we have ordered, and I need to prepare for the barbecue tomorrow evening. I got volunteered to sing at it! I have my guitar with me, but absolutely no music or lyrics (and, to be honest, a voice which is very much out of practice!), so there is some work to be done there!
