Foxton to Smeeton 20 May 09

Last night we went into the Locks Pub to watch Mikron Theatre again, performing another play, Tales of the Thames. We set off this morning tat 10 am to have lunch in the restaurant in Union Basin, Market Harborough, unfortunately its still closed and in receivership, so we walked into town and ate there. We moored on the visitor moorings at the entrance to the basin and took on water, this is the slowest tap we have used for some time. After lunch we set off again retracing our steps to Foxton. We had just negotiated the first swing bridge when the skys opened, we both dived into the boat and sat there for 5 minuets until it stopped. Soon the sun was back with us and we continued on and up towards Leicester until we reached the winding hole at Smeeton, here we winded and dropped back a few yards to some very good moorings with rings. I put the 3 dongle on top of the TV mast but still couldn't get a signal so this will get posted on Thursday some time.
