On towards the Welford Arm

We woke to yet another glorious autumn fact Lisa (Nb. What a Lark) was sending text messages stating 'Oh what a beautiful morning, Oh what a beautiful day' and I was waiting for Howard Keel to turn up and pick up the refrain..
(For younger readers, the song, for that is what Lisa was referring to, Oh what a beautiful Morning is from the musical Oklahoma and Howard Keel was the lead.)
Anyway, we had a delayed start as Joe and David were rummaging in What a Larks engine hole dealing with coolant issues before we got under way but that sorted we set off towards Welford.
 Leaving last nights mooring, blue skies and bright sunshine
 David preparing What a Lark for the Off

 This canal is just a gem
 The boys

 Yarwood followed by What a Lark

 Turning into the Welford Arm
 This was circling over our heads as we headed along the Welford Arm
 Approaching the only lock on the arm

 Tree lined and pretty

 Winding at the end before mooring up
 The Wharf Inn right a the end of the arm where a welcome pint, or was it two, were consumed
 Nb. What a Lark with Yarwood behind
 Lisa Joe and dogs
That's us for the day, moored and ready for a meal in The Wharf Inn this evening
