|When the river is on red boards all these steps are under water.|
Once we got the TV tuned (Rugby was on later) we made our way to Sawley Marina and found Norman and Shirley manning the ECP&DA stand. Jim and Jennie was also there and between all of us we took turns looking after it.

I managed to sneak out at one point to watch the Black Pig morris dancers strutting their stuff and very entertaining they were too.
|What a fabulous hat.|
By 13.30 Ian was itching to get back to watch the Rugby so, duty done, we said our farewells and high tailed it back to FS. So glad to get back to a warm boat 'cause that 'icy wind' nearly did for us! Felt sorry for Norman and Shirley who had to stay until 16.00. Anyway while Ian was sitting watching the Rugby I went fishing and although only caught one, what a cracking fish it was. Another decent Perch weighing nearly 1.5lb.
Probably get to Willington tomorrow. Need to visit Midland Chandlers to replace one of our cassette slides. Keeps dropping off as we remove it, not pleasant I can assure you!
