We stopped near Hartshill and decided to move again in the morning as we wanted a paper and neither of us couldn't face the walk up the hill to the village. Lots of boats about travelling in the sunshine and we plodded along extremely slowly following a Canaltime boat. He did pull over and let the queue of boats pass eventually. Ben and I walked the towpath as usual. We stopped in Nuneaton where the graffiti told us we were in a built up area and got some milk and a paper before moving on. We turned left at Marston Junction so we're now on the Ashby Canal. Eric's been busy washing one side of the boat and Ben and I are playing ball on the towpath.
