Atherstone to Alvecote

A slightly warmer start to the day. We set off to finish going down the last 6 locks of the Atherstone flight. At the last lock we Andy was waiting to see us through. I thas been a day of meeting up with boaters we know. At Polesworth we spotted "First Fruits" moored up so we pulled in for a few minutes of chat with David And Viv. As we were chatting narrowboat "No Direction" passed by and we said a quick hello goddbye, then just after we set off we passed "Copperkilns II" and had a very quick chat with Elaine and her husband on their way to the Ashby Canal.

We arrived at Alvecote and have moored opposite the Samuel Barlow, where we will be moored for the weekend. If the weather is kind over the weekend Jo hopes we can get a 3rd and hopefully final coat of blue on the starboard cabinside.

Keith.
