Spring Summer Cruse 2015 ❷

Stenson Lock  to Willington

Overnight the weather quite cool once again though we avoided any frosts.

Morning: Up early to prepare the boat for a short cruise as to Willington. The first meal of the day was once again the full traditional English breakfast. Followed by several cups of coffee from the percolator. It was late in the morning before everything was finally ready.

Afternoon: Just after lunch we finally came winded in front of the lock. Then enjoyed a slow cruise Willington where we had a choice of several mooring spaces. We passed several other boats on the move. A visit to the new co-op to stock up on essentials.

Evening: The evening came and we prepared a meal on board.  It was a warm evening and the bats were active.
