10 April Linslade to Black Horse Bridge

We ate at the Globe last night, the restaurant was full and we hadn't booked a table so we ate in the bar. This is no hardship in the Globe as they have several areas with tables in quiet alcoves. We ate from the specials menu both having Lamb meatballs which were excellent.
We were a bit later getting away than planed as there was a bit about the steam launch "Gondola " on Lake Conniston and her fist lady captain. We pushed off just before 11 am by which time most of the other boats had already left. All the locks went quite well meeting boats in all the right places. We stopped at Willowbridge marina for diesel at 59p/lt topping the tank right up. Not long after leaving it started to rain and this continued right until we moored at about 5 pm at the end of the visitor moorings at Black Horse Bridge.
