|Leaving our mooring near Kegworth|
This morning we left our mooring at 10am, Ben and I walking as far as Zouch Lock through some fields on the way. Two fields had cows in, but they were too busy nibbling the grass to take any notice of us walking along the footpath......thank goodness! Back on the boat we passed through the flood gates with emergency flood moorings opposite Soar Boat Club where they ignored our cheery waves. I won't tell you what Eric said!
We continued on the river until we worked through Bishop Meadow Lock and stopped for water as I'd done a wash load. We got rid of the rubbish but the elsan was out of order but as we planned to go to Loughborough Wharf it didn't really matter. According to Pearson's there are secure visitor moorings here but sadly that is not so, so after I'd been to Tesco we winded and moved on passing through Loughborough. We didn't see any boats on the move today but as we moored above Barrow Deep Lock there was the boat we'd shared the locks with yesterday.
Tea was bacon & eggs ......yes Anne the bacon you brought us from Grantham.......it was delicious as were the sausages we had yesterday.
