The morning started well, it was a beautiful morning and the Soar is so pretty. Barney and I did not take our usual perambulations as the tow path went through lots of fields which would have been fine apart from the animals that were in some of them!!!! I am not keen on cows........
|Our half illegal mooring at Mountsorrel, however the boat behind was wholly illegal.|
Very few boats came either way so we did not inconvenience anyone.
|Not a breath of wind, yesterdays rain all gone and crystal clear water|
|Just a little way along we passed these interesting town houses|
|With their own mini dock|
|Approaching Barrow there are some lovely big house with beautifully tended gardens|
|We went through Barrow deep lock which has traffic lights to tell you if it is safe to proceed onto the river Soar|
