Woke up cold at 5am, Geoff was already awake he couldn’t sleep, we put the central heating on and went back to sleep.

I woke at 8am decided to put kettle on, and Geoff made tea, been lucky whilst we have been away, he has made it most mornings.

The sun is out again, and off we go, we stopped to pump out the sewage, but the man couldn’t get his machine to work, so we started the locks instead, and there were a lot of them.

We are back to two boats in locks, the people we were with seemed very slow and I ended up doing most of the locks.We came out of one flight of locks to go into a tunnel which was over a mile, neither of us likes it, it seemed to go on forever, glad we didnt meet anyone coming the other way! Not sure I want to go back that way.

We stopped for lunch before we attacked the second flight, at the end of that, we found another pump out station, which worked this time.

We drove on for another hour to reach Wesson, where we stopped for the night.

Had some dinner, then went for a walk, guess what we found another pub.
