Tuesday 12th April
This morning started off cold and windy. When the sun managed to get through it did have some warmth but the clouds kept getting in the way. The wind was quite sharp and occasionally blew us off course but not too bad and the rain held off as well.
Red letter day! We saw our first ducklings of the year today. Fluffy little balls of pike food, and if they survive that the Hoisin sauce is waiting.
Our journey took us past the site of Bosworth Battlefield and we may stop off on the way back for a look
We stopped off at Sutton Wharf where there is a fine little café and had a spot of lunch before continuing for a short while to find our overnight mooring at bridge 37. Another lovely quiet spot.
