No hangovers for us this morning. Drinking copious amounts of water before bed helps. Only downside is the frequent visits to the loo!! As we were up fairly early Ian decided the cabin side ( towpath side ) needed a darn good wash and you cant do one without doing the roof as well. We had planned to leave as soon as we had finished but all good intentions flew out the window when we went to say farewell to the lads. We have found in the past that it doesn't matter who your trying to say goodbye to, goodbyes are never quick. Ian and James started discussing the filth and rubbish in Leicester and it must have been a good 15 minutes later when they finally waved us on our way.
First stop to shop was in Rugby. Moored in front of us was Al and Del Nb Derwent6. No sign of life but as we walked down the path to Tesco, we all but bumped into Al carrying her shopping. Then we had the meet and great moment. I do so love meeting fellow bloggers. You almost feel as if you've known them for years. After a long natter I started to feel sorry for Al. The shopping bags must have started to get heavier and heavier so finally we let her depart so she could get back to the boat. By now time was getting on and we eventually left Rugby a great deal later then we had anticipated. Waved farewell to Derwent6 and headed toward Hawksbury Junction. We saw Nb Piston Broke and Nb Oakfield on the way. No communication with them but I'm sure we will meet eventually.
