The first lock of the day
Not the only ones about..
There be Nb. Windsong moored between locks 8 and 7
Following our single handler, a very efficient and capable single handler, up the last four locks
We moored at the top of the flight while Joe popped into Atherstone for some fresh bread rolls and a newspaper and on his return I cooked a belated breakfast for us.
There were lots of happy boaters about including a chap who introduced himself to 'Mrs Yarwood' saying he was a blog reader - nice to meet you David and I hope you enjoy your boating this week.
We pulled pins again after our brunch and headed off towards Harsthill where we have moored for the night.
Mix gusty wind, moored boats on a bend, blind bridge hole and boat approaching you too quickly - result Yarwood 'breasted up' against work boats - but no collision.
And just after workboat bend we have a sunken cruiser
Not a bad stretch is it?
Hartshill Yard, a 19th century maintenance yard for the Coventry Canal Company, now Canal and River Trust
Floyd, Joe, Diana and Brian
We headed for the Anchor Inn and a welcome pint before settling down for the rest of the day.
