Up and off early today again.
We only had the two locks to do before the junction, then the swing bridge and the waterpoint to fill - whilst that was happening we did the elsan and rubbish.
|Through the 2nd of the locks - this is a short pound, but someone|
still decided to moor in that pound .....
and on the lock moorings at that!
But the big news in this short span of time is that Diane did her first junction, easing around from the Trent & Mersey onto the
Worthy of high praise indeed!
|Step 1. Turn in plenty of time|
|Step2. Continue the turn|
|Step 3. Now aim toward the opening for the swing bridge|
|Step 4. easy peasy it is done - now look away from the camera|
as though this is an everyday thing
|The relatively new Kings Orchard Marina - now looks|
|...and pretty full as well|
Weatherwise it was vastly different to yesterday - where it was sunny, it was cloudy today; where it was calm with no breeze, there was a bit ofwind; where the air had a bit of warmth, it was freezing.
Eventually we made it to Sutton Road Bridge where we usually like to moor up as it is very handy to the Retail Park - we ventured off there soon after mooring up - mainly for a paper and Diane's Women's Weekly and just a couple of other things.
We needed to be back for a full afternoon and evening of rugby - well when we got back Wales were behind, but rectified all of that by the end - they gave the others a score to chase.
Then there was the England v France match to end it all. France were determined to firstly beat England and when that wasn't going to happen, then make sure that they didn't win the trophy - in that they were successful, but it was a great game by both teams.
