Our goal was in sight - we had been aiming to arrive in Stone on Xmas eve - just a short 3 hour run from mooring to mooring with taking on water and emptying an Elsan.
|Sunrise - a great way to start the day - fine, sunny and bit chilly|
Under very bright blue skies this morning, we set out; it was chilly but as the sun rose you could feel the warmth - not at all what you would expect for a December day.
The locks were all easy to operate, so it can be seen where CRT are doing some work.
Our desired mooring was above Star Lock and we found it inhabited with just one other boat.
|The sun was still shining brightly after we moored up|
Off to do some last minute shopping and then we could relax and all Diane then had to do was wait for Santa to arrive.
We hope that everyone has a great Xmas and please do not over-indulge - it will just mean more locks and more walking to be done to exercise it all off.
|From our family to yours|
