Pleasant four and a half hour trip today, although the last few miles were somewhat frustrating as we were behind a crawler again. We do not go at any great pace but feel that 1.5 knots is just a tad slow! We left Pewsey just before 8 and stopped to fuel at Gibsons boat services by bridge 124. The small services there was beautifully kept and we duly admired his extremely neat garden. Fuel was 95p a litre which is about what we were paying for the car this time last year! So much for red diesel being 1/2 the price of road fuel, it is more like 3/4 now.
However we have a nice mooring in Devizes where we intend to remain until we tackle the 29 locks on Saturday
