Today we have moved on to Market Harborough,
Today would have been dads birthday and it is ten years when mum passed away.

We left Leicester on Wednesday to travel up the first dozen locks to moor at Kilby Bridge cold, wet and hungry.
Yesterday we moved on to Fleckney Bridge in better weather and another dozen locks.
