With the weather forecast for today being good, but with wind and rain coming in for tomorrow, we thought we would travel to Harborough today, rather than in the wet.
This new house has appeared in the village of Foxton.
We moored up on the towpath at Union Wharf to await a free spot for us to moor in the basin, when the hire boats had left, and whilst on the towpath we were visited by our old friends the resident pair of swans with their 4 offspring this year. Once our allocated mooring in the basin was vacated we moved in and moored up outside the Waterfront restaurant. We have already caught up with many old friends here, with yet more to see over the next few days.
