This is a record of our travels and experiances as we travel on our narrowboat The Maisibert
Sunday, 31 July 2016
Yesterday we had to get off the Trent and Mersey as the water levels in the canal dropped so much that the nearby marina was being effected.
So they were going to padlock lock 1 which meant we couldn't go forward or back because of problems in the next pound.
Last night was our last night together with Dianne and Peter and we moored on the junction of the Soar and Trent.
We had a meal and drinks in the pub at Trent Lock before we said our goodbyes this morning.
Whilst we have been in Nottingham we have had to have an engineer to check our new batteries as they were not holding their charge.
So last night we went into a marina to go on electric hook up to charge the batteries but alas tonight it has made no difference.
So feeling like the guy in the bottom picture.
The first picture shows the view from the galley window tonight.
As we are moored on the Muskham Ferry Pub moorings we had a belated anniversary meal for Dianne and Peter's anniversary in the pub tonight.
We have made it to the River Trent and are booked to go through the lock on to the Trent at 6.30am.
The trip was boring apart from seeing a manned railway crossing, a field of poppies and a railway bridge that had to be opened to let us through.
