The mist was a little slower to clear than yesterday but by the time we set off just before 9.30 the sun was making itself felt. Barney and I sett off for our customary morning walk
|we met a friendly chocolate lab en route but as usual Barney declined to play.....|
All sorted without mishap eventually.......
It was quite a gentle turn onto the Welford arm and then just about a mile and 1 lock to go.
|Just past bridge 2|
|There were several boats waiting to come down and there is not a lot of room to manoeuvre just before the lock|
|Epiphany went up ahead of us|
We passed quite a few boats on our way to the end which boded well for finding a suitable mooring place......
As we approached the end of the arm we saw there was a very convenient spot just behind Epiphany....
We had timed our arrival just right........morning departures over and arrivals mostly behind us....some of whom were disappointed not to find a space......
Total distance:4.86 miles
Average speed:1.97 mph (2.38 lock/mph)
