21 miles, 13 locks
After yesterday’s sunshine today felt a bit bleak. It was cold and windy but we made good progress, fuelled by tea and toasted sandwiches.
At Islip the paddles were being worked on so we had an enforced half hour stop while waiting to be let through.
We saw only three other moving boats and didn’t share a single lock, but we do find we’re more efficient that way.
Lots more Red Kites today too. I did try to photograph them but this was the best one!
Tonight we’ve stopped at the Friends of the River Nene moorings just outside Wellingborough (we never stop in the town itself as it’s too noisy)
