A cow and her calf drinking from the canal this morning as we set off. Soon after setting off we saw a hot air balloon, but it was too far away to get a decent photo.

Approaching Hardings Wood junction and back onto the Trent & Motorway. We arrived at Harecastle tunnel at 9:05am and entered the tunnel 25 minutes later, and it took 35 minutes, which is our fastest through yet.
