We are on the move.

We disconnected the umbilical cord that attaches FL to the grid, stowed the Beer Hunter back on the roof, a couple of bags of coal in the cratch and set off out of the marina.



Two Jays waved us off with a salute from Joan.



A sharp turn to starboard out of the marina and the bow is pointing " Oop North". It's only a 200yd run to the first lock where Ray & Diane were kindly waiting to lock us through.





Duane

Exiting the lock Diane took control of the tiller to '"show me how it should be done" then leapt off FL like a gazelle at the next bridge 'ole.



Until we meet again.
We didn't move far, just into Stone, Sue wanted to shop in town and post a Mum's day card, we will stay here overnight.. it started to rain anyway.

We bought one of those Nutri-bullet thingies that blitz's veg, fruit and nuts into a drink. I tried a veggie concoction but that ended up in the canal, I then whizzed up a fruit blend of strawberries, raspberries, pear, blueberries, blackberries and banana which was much better, we had that with our pasty lunch.
