Today at Trent Lock on one side of the river was the Scouts having fun in canoes and rafts and the other side was the modern version of Morris Dancer's strutting their stuff.

The last week we have prepared for The Maisibert to have its bottom blacked on the River Soar, we have cruised on to river Trent today in the rain with the hope of painting the gunnels before she goes in for blacking.

 Whilst we were away The Maisibert was moored in Mercia Marina opposite her sister boat Intrepid, for a little while the twins were together again.

Last week we travelled back to Essex to attend a friends tribunal which had a good result, this gave us a chance to catch up with family.         Maisie has really grown and is forward for her age,thats due to  the hard work of Claire and Darren.

Last night we moored in Alrewas and as their week for the arts come to an end they were completing a murial on a road bridge over the canal, as you leave Alrewas via a lock you drop on to the river Trent and the bottom picture shows us rejoining the manmade section as the river carries on forward.

Since the last post we stayed a couple days in Stone, mainly because we had arranged to meet Maria and Paul our boat builder and because once again the weather was bad.
But it did give us a little rest before we set off for some long cruising days.
