Red Bull Wharf to Westport Lake.

It was supposed to rain all day, but it certainly didn’t where we were. We stopped below Red Bull top lock for food shopping at Tesco's, then carried on the Harecastle tunnel where we had about an hour wait to go through, so we had lunch and a coffee.

We moored up at the South portal of Harecastle tunnel where we normally moor overnight, but having chatted to the tunnel keeper about the house above the tunnel being empty, which it has now been for 2 weeks, he said that people had already been in the garden messing it up, and there was a dodgy looking guy hanging around so we decide to move on, better safe that sorry.

We are now moored at Westport Lake.

We took a stroll around the lake, which has had a lot of work done to the footpaths since we last walked around it. This squirrel was tucking into some food someone had left for the pigeons.

This sign made me giggle, a very narrow area of no fishing between the 2 arrows on the sign! If you can’t quite clearly read it it says “No Fishing between Arrows”.
