On the Move at Last!

Early this morning, very early this morning, at 7:00am, halfway through our mushroom on toast, there was a knock on the boat, coal had arrived!

Following loading the 4tonnes of coal into the hold, Keith then winded the boat in the basin and we headed off hoping to get as far as Foxton. The worst of the ice was at bridge 14, the 1st winding point, but after going through the bridge 'ole the ice thinned and by bridge 13 had disappeared and apart from patches here and there we had a virtually clear run through to Foxton.
