Tuesday 10th April 2012
We left it a bit later than usual to set off this morning because the weather report said that the showers would get less as the day wore on.
In a sunny spell we cast of and chugged east along the very twisty and beautiful bit of the system. It wasn't too long before another shower put in an appearance, this time of hail, and I cowered under under a brolly while the scenery slipped past. In between the showers the sun lit up the countryside and created some lovely rainbows.
Toward the bottom of the 6 Bank Newton Locks we joined up with a hire boat and continued together through those and the following 3 locks, as far as Gargrave where we intend to spend the next couple of days.
