300 Yard Crawl.

Still at Hartshill South of bridge 31.

Once again we found ourselves iced in but by midmorning the ice seemed to be melting as there had been some light drizzle and a breeze had sprung up. However, looks can be deceiving and water was laying on top of the ice concealing its true thickness. It took about 5 attempts to even get off the bank before moving forward. We pushed on through the first bridge hole to the BW yard and water point to fill the water tank. The conditions past bridge 31 were no better so a nice mooring next to the Sea Scout hall look very inviting and here we will stay until conditions improve. If all else fails we can catch a bus to Coventry and then Rugby if need be.
