Thursday 26 May back on board

We didn’t have a bad run from Lowestoft with intermittent very heavy shows. By the time we reached Napton I was in great need of a cup of tea so we stopped off at Bridge Nurseries for a cupper and some magic cake made from lemon merengue sponge.

We turned into the moorings and the car went into alarm as the rear suspension collapsed so it looks like we will be going home with the AA after the weekend.

As we walked to the boat it started to rain so we did a few odds and ends like making up the bed etc. before moving off down to the lock to load up. The canal is much quieter today than last time we were here and we were able to load up in peace before heading off down the flight. All the locks were against us until the last two where we met a couple of boats coming up the flight, there were no boats moored in the bottom pound but as the bottom lock sat open ready for us to go down I could not resist it.

We moored for the night on the visitor moorings between the Folly and the winding hole, taking up the last available spot on the straight edging just before 5 30 pm.
