We didn't get as far as expected today. Cath has pulled a muscle in her shoulder and is in some discomfort. Steering the boat is painful, and of course, working locks is totally out of the question.
We've stopped at Kilby Bridge, and will probably stay here tomorrow, maybe even longer if the problem persists.
I walked up to Wigston to see if there was a pharmacy open. There wasn't, so I managed to get a bus into Leicester to find a Boots to get some pain reliever for her.
The bus ride gave me some interesting insight into the layout of things around here, and we now know how to get to several necessary services like supermarkets easily.
The weather has been glorious, but there was a single crack of thunder and just a few large rain drops this afternoon.
