Mail run.

0 Locks 4 Miles. Now  moored at Newbold.

Things to do, people to see, time to make a move. First job of course to go and fill up the water tank while the washing machine was doing a wash that way keeping the tank as full as possible. After winding  just below Hillmorton bottom lock it was back to Clifton Cruisers for the mail.

While at Clifton Cruisers we met up with Baden and Ros on Nb Pania and made a date for lunch tomorrow. We had a quick chat but moorings were at a premium so we didn’t stop for long. Just after leaving Clifton Cruisers we spotted Nb Ten Bob Note moored up and we had a quick passing wave with Ernie who later sent us an email asking if we knew where there was a dental surgery as he had broken a tooth. Luckily we were able to point him in the right direction.

Up to Brownsover for lunch and a quick visit to Tesco’s for the inevitable requirements before moving on up to Newbold near the Barley Mow pub. When we came through here several days ago the place was empty but today we were lucky in finding a mooring which is only a 48 hour mooring, not a 14 day job but that’s life, better luck next time.
