The wind was gentle, every lock was against me, the sun was shining but it was so good to be back at this boating marlarkey!
The boys were straight back into the routine too
Two and a hour hours later the wind had picked up as forecast and we were quietly mooring up behind the slumbering Nb. Clarence.
We sat it out throughout the day until 5pm when conditions had moderated yet again before setting off together toward Leicester. We had persuaded Derek and Sheila that Leicester was indeed a safe mooring and then crossed fingers and prayed that there was no incident about to happen that would make us out liars.
The last lock before Leicester and the rain had just started
Off they go, Yarwood leading the way to our overnight mooring
We moored up in Leicester on the 'line', Sheila and I dashing to Tesco for a few essentials, before settling in for the evening. No surprises, we had an uneventful night..Yes a little noisy because we were in a City but nothing to stop you mooring in this vibrant and interesting place. This will have been the fifth time of mooring here and we have never had any problems at all.
