Watched the Lions v Hurricanes before we pulled pins, a good game  even though the result wasn't what Gatland would want.

After a few descent days of weather we were back in jeans and fleeces.

Farmland both sides of the canal until we are through Newbold tunnel then we are at the outer residential areas of Rugby. At Brownsover opposite the water point there are new mooring rings at 10 foot intervals nearly all the way to bridge 59, a welcome addition for those wanting to stop for Tesco's.

Bridge art.

Desperate farmers illegal poppy field!

We stopped for a couple of days in Hillmorton there's a handy Co-op and post office close by. This morning we treated ourselves to a full english at the Canalchef, proprietor Lesley said she could tell we were 'boaters' because we took our tea without milk or sugar! .......Nah she probably saw the cork orb attached to my keys.

I've noticed that when I have my "float key ring" clipped to my trousers, visiting boaters acknowledge and are much more friendly towards me than when not...
