Well autumn is certainly on its way, just under 1°C last night and the soup on the stove this morning ready for lunch, I am glad we didn’t turn the stove off last night. This morning although it was actually colder than the last two days felt much more pleasant as the wind died away to nothing overnight as can be seen from the smoke rising from this chimney.

Last year when we came through there were some nice raised bed gardens by Meaford Lock, it doesn’t look as if they have been touched since then which is a shame as someone put a lot of effort into it early on in its life.

The canal looked very tranquil with no wind and sharp reflections and it was nice I didn’t even have a coat on.
I am glad this chap is keeping abreast of things and wearing his face covering, although I don't think it is really necessary on a canal bank out in the open with just your dog for company.

It was quite a short day for us as we have to time it to make our booked passage through Harecastle tunnel, Tuesday morning would have been a bight tight so we plan to moor at the tunnel tomorrow night.
