Up and away early, the sky was lovely and clear so we thought that we’d get going.
Through the stop lock at Autherley and round the junction to see a heron perched on the signpost.
We stopped at Compton to go to the Daisy freezer centre for some barbecue food, and to Limekiln Chandlers for a jerry can.
The plan was to stop at the bottom of Bratch locks, on the mooring by the picnic site, for the barbecue. But we made good progress and were there by about two o’clock, so we carried on and eventually stopped just passed the vistors moorings below Greensforge lock. It wasnt as convenient a barbecue spot, but I cut down the grass, nettles etc and we managed OK.
