Such a long cruise today! All of an hour and 20 minutes doing 3.4 miles and 1 lock. We need diesel you see and the boat yard at Kings lock isn't open today and are only doing Sunday hours tomorrow (being a bank holiday) 10am - 4pm. Thought we may as well do a bit this morning and then Ian might be able to do a spot of painting while I do a spot of fishing. Caught my first Eel of the year and hope it will be the last!!! Hate the things, they are slimy, cant be grabbed properly and once that slime gets on your hands is almost impossible to remove. How anyone likes fishing for them is beyond me. I suppose they do make good eating though, if you like that sort of thing.
Ian had to abandon the painting idea as guess what!! It rained again. Instead he has been doing computer things (ECP&DA Outlook magazine as one of them). As for me, a day in front of the TV catching up on all those programs recorded and not watched.
