Today we left our mooring near Deptmore Lock and first of all worked through the lock, which was easier as a boat was leaving the lock and another was waiting so we could leave the bottom gates open. Ben and then walked to Radford Bank before getting back on board the boat for a cuppa. We didn't stop even though there's excellent value meals at the carvery in the Radford Bank Inn.
A much better today weather wise and we arrived at Tixall Lock, 4 miles 6 furlongs said the sign on the lock cottage from Deptmore to Tixall Lock. Ben and I then walked the short distance to Tixall Wide where there was a space with our name on it. Planning to stay put as I'm off to Newport on Monday to get prescriptions and see the family. Eric is in charge of dog walking for a couple of days!
