Off again this morning. We've decided not to brave the river for the time being, so we turned west out of the marina and headed for Willington. Just ahead of us we spotted a boat heading for the lock and thought, wonderful we have a pair. It wasn't to be, there was already a boat waiting. We went through that one alone and continued along to the next. On the way we passed Roger and Maureen Yorke in Ramyshome, we've met them several times now over the years but we couldn't stop because the wind was too strong to make it a good idea. At the next lock we did manage to pick up a pairing, and for the rest of the journey we shared the locks.
Arriving at Willington we found the moorings full, but have managed a place on the tow path, still close to town.
After a short walk into town for some provisions I hadn't long returned to the boat when the rain started, great timing.
