Before leaving Stoke Bruerne this morning I took walk around and got some pictures.
After setting off, the first thing we encounter is Blisworth Tunnel. So it was coat on, brolly up, hatches closed. As we discovered on the trip down, this is one wet tunnel. We met only one boat while in the tunnel and we were through in about half and hour.
At Gayton Junction we stopped for the services to throw a can and take on water. After that we continued northward under a clearing sky, soon the sun was starting to show its face and the day warmed up considerably. Around midday the clouds returned and it started to look like it might rain. Sure enough, suddenly it was back under the brolly as the heavens opened. Luckily it was short lived and once again the sun peeked through.
We've now found a nice mooring, out in the country with only passing boats for company.
