Didnt travel far today Up three locks and a couple of mile. We stopped at Broughton so I could go for a walk round the small lake and Ian could rub down the gunwales. Still had floating weed issues by lock gates as well as a huge tree trunk blocking the exit. Pole came in useful once again.

|Had this wrapped round our bow. Reversing was necessary to float it free|
|Moored at Broughton and more floating reed.|
On my walk round the lake.
