7 Locks, 4 miles. Now moored at Stone.

There was a crisp frost on the ground when we got up this morning, needless to say we didn't hurry ourselves in getting under way again. We waited until the sun was high enough to make it's presence felt, no matter that the temperature was still pretty low.

We made good time with most locks being set in our favour and only passing 2 other boats on the move. We reached Stone just after noon and found a mooring next to the resident restaurant boat which is a nice sunny location. After lunch I finished a couple of jobs on the boat and then we wandered up into town for a look around.

After a meal at the Star Inn this evening we went into town after dark to photograph the Xmas light's.

Thanks for all the birthday messages he's now gone shy and into hiding.

1562 locks, 3247 ½ miles, 52 Tunnels, 42 swing bridges and 39 lift bridges since Nov 2006
