Last Sunday Helen,Tim and Heather joined us for the day and helped us cruise from Nottingham to Trent Lock.
The following day Peter and Dianne joined us for a ten day cruise and tonight we are moored in Alrewas.

Whilst we have been on our own I have been practising making pastry I have a long way to go to get it like mum made
Once again the moorings in Newark looked better at night.
On our return trip to Nottingham we experienced high winds having to prepare for storm force winds for one night.

After a large Windows update which used all our data which meant I have not been able to update the blog.
After Craig left us we left Nottingham and headed to Newark where we stayed for a couple of days.

Not sure if Craig realised what he was sleeping with the other night but this was a big moth.
The moorings we are on look better at night.

 On Friday we said our goodbyes to Peter and Diane so Thursday night we had meal in the Trent Lock Pub.

 Craig has cruised us down the Trent and Mersea Canal taking in the smallest bridge and down the deepest lock on the canal.

Today we have cruised to Alrewas taking Craig on to new waters.
On our way we stopped off to catch up with Al who was moored a few miles from where we moored last night.

 As Craig took control and the weather improved it was time for a BBQ, we tried a chicken in the Cobb when Ray was aboard, so Saturday it was time to try the boned pork.
The whole evening was a great success.

 On Friday Ray left us and we were waiting for Craig to join us late in the evening so while we were waiting a trip to the pub beckoned.
