First stop Peterborough service point.
By 8am we were heading up stream towards our 1st lock at Orton and the wind was beginning to pick up speed. I had called the River Inspector to check on some over runs of winter maintenance work and learnt that these would not be completed until Saturday morning so our trip today would necessarily bit shorter than planned. We had thought to head for a mooring at Wansford but there was already a boat moored there according to EA so we settled for a rather 'familiar' mooring at Alwalton; it was here we spent three weeks last summer caught by the floods!
By the time we got to Alwalton the wind was slinging us around quite a bit anyway so stopping didn't seem such a bad idea.

That's it, we are off ..service point next stop The Parkway bridge in front of us.
This bridge is a bit more attractive
