Welford to Norton Junction

 This morning we left Welford at 9:05am, moored just past Norton junction at 4:25pm, 7hrs 20mins, 8 locks 1 tunnel. /// ballooned.etchings.shortcuts

Wet and dry, wet and dry morning, started off wet this morning, Jo lit the back cabin stove but rain stopped by the time we got to Watford locks and it warmed up nicely.

We were supposed to be in dry dock at Welford today, but Les has gone down with Covid 😟

We are now returning to our mooring and will have to see what happens with my hospital appointment next month before we can rebook the dry dock.
