We arrived at the boat at 2pm today having dropped our boys at different cricket matches around Derby. All provisions safely aborad and a chat with our neighbours who we hope to meet out on the cut sometime on our trip.
We set off at 4pm in glorious sunshine intending to get through Fradley, which was absolutely packed with moored boats.
The weather was just perfect with a light breeze. Lots of boats moored up along the Coventry, but we finally moored up just beyond Streethay around 7pm. Having eaten on board, we wandered down to The Plough at Huddlesford and enjoyed a drink. It's nice to see the boards off the windows and the pub alive again, and refreshing that they are trying to cater for everyone, allowing dogs in certain areas. Very enjoyable.
