Craig battled the wind to get us to Hinkley to take on supplies and then to battle on to Bridge 3.
After a cold and wet journey we were ready for Homemade Pizzas and a beer for Craig and wine for us.

The week started with weather so that we could sit out and have a BBQ but the last few days its been coats and meat and potatoe pie with baked apples stuffed with fruit and nuts.

Today we have reached the end of the Ashby taking a walk to the end of the restored section.
On the walk Ruby came across a little mouse.

Last night was BBQ night making the most of the warm weather.

Yesterday we travelled through the dreaded Braunston Tunnel without meeting another boat coming in the opposite direction and without meeting them on the bends within the tunnel.
Today we travelled on to just outside Rugby ready to travel back to the marina to pick up Craig.

Today we had an hour wait before we could travel down the Watford flight to moor tonight at Norton Junction.

Monday evening we attempted to cook homemade pizza's on the Cobb but had to finish the cooking in the oven.
But apart from the finish cooking in the oven the pizza's tasted great.

After stopping off for shopping at Crick on Sunday and then travelling through Crick Tunnel mooring for two days just before Watford Locks for a BBQ night.
