After yesterdays soaking today is sunny, I put an undercoat of paint on the well deck, then we prepared FL for the off, have to make the most of it as the forecast is for rain for a few days. A blustery breeze was blowing but it was warm in the shelter of hills and canal side hedgerows.

We only cruised for an hour passing the site of the medieval village of Wormleighton, the canal cuts through one end of a rectangular moat to a long gone manor house, the village was abandoned when the manor house was burned down during the English civil war in 1645. Wormleighton manor house and village were resurrected in the 19 century a mile away on a hill.

The forecast has changed we are now going to have a second sunny day
