Day Trip to Radford Semele

Today we had a trip out to Radford Semele.


We had lunch there before returning to the Saltisford Arm.


It was a lovely day, probably the last decent day this year so we made the most of it.

Long Itchington to Saltisford Arm

A hot day was predicted so we decided to push on to out home mooring today so we could put Marmite on her lead and have all our doors open to keep the boat cool. Our garden needs some weeding but not too much and it actually looks like a cottage garden which is what Jo intended, Jo will start on it tomorrow.

Moored at Long Itchington in the sunshine, and looking forward to a pub lunch which will save having to cook in this heat, change from salads, we had a salad yesterday and will have one tomorrow.

Crick to Braunston Top Lock

Now moored above Braunston top lock, Nuneaton & Brighton stopped for a chat and a cuppa before we helped them down the locks, Jo had her first go at steering a breasted pair down the locks, I am so proud of her.

Welford Junction to Crick.


Today it seems that at last things have started to actually warm up. We have been selling coal last week………………...…. in June! Can’t believe it really, but not complaining.

Mill Bridge No.40 to Bridge No.51 Laughton Hills


Now moored at Bridge No.51 Laughton Hills and enjoying the long awaited sunshine, perhaps having put our “Coal for Sale” board out has worked after all.

Bridge No.33 to Bridge No.21 Yelvertoft


We winded at Cracks Hill, Crick, and returned to Bridge No.21 near Yelvertoft.

My theory of putting our “Coal for Sale” boards out hasn’t worked in making things warm up, that wind still has a cold bit to it, brrrr, despite the sunshine.
