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.


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.
