One of our shorter trips today!!!!  We didn't even reach the sani station as we saw a space on the 14 day moorings just before and decided that would suit nicely.
After mooring up I walked on and saw that all the 24hr places above the lock were taken although there was one space 48hr, just below the lock, but it is very narrow and dark there so decided we were better off where we were.
There are some wonderfully kept gardens opposite the top moorings
However there are also notices asking people not to run engines unless absolutely necessary........I suppose if you can only stay 24 hours it might not be necessary........

We had moved before 8 as there was heavy rain forecast for later on.......wrong again.......
Admittedly not much sun and rather breezy but the forecast rain did not materialise and now the forecast says we are in for more hot weather.....

Later we had visitors.  Tony and Di with friends of theirs Joe and Alison.  After drinks on Petroc we repaired to the Brasenose Arms and enjoyed a very good supper together.  I was glad I had booked a table as the place was heaving.

Total distance:0.69 miles 
Elapsed time:0h28m22s 
Average speed:1.45 mph (1.45 lock/mph)
