Monday 18th April
A long day today. We rose before 8.00 and because we had a lot of washing to do decided to travel a long time in order to get two loads out of the way.
The sun shone brilliantly as we set off and it looked perfect as we wound our way southward. Our first stop was Sutton Wharf where we availed ourselves of the services, water etc., and I couldn't resist an ice cream of course. Setting off again we intended to make it to Hinckley for the night and we arrived here about 4.00 o'clock and were lucky to get the last mooring spot. Unfortunately we can't get tele here so we will just have to feel deprived and find something else to do.
