|The Cape of Good Hope on the right.|
Today then we left Saltisford, turned right toward Cape Locks and with only these to do today and no rushing involved, having to wait to fill the top lock gave me time to bask in this glorious sunshine. No warm coats needed for us today! The second of the two locks were full as a small cruiser had not long exited and awaited our descent from the top lock.

Creeping past the cruiser I caught a glimpse of a small garden on the right. Wow...that must have been some party. A few sore heads the next day no doubt?
Approaching bridge 49 and the congested part of the canal with Kate Hire fleet taking up most of the water, it didn't help matters that a pump out was being done to another visiting boat considerably reducing the channel width. That boat's tiller was sticking way out toward the bank and I had to shout to the lady on the stern to move her tiller out of the way as I had visions of catching it with FS.
|Crickey...how did we squeeze past that?|
Having stopped at Tesco for lunch and shop we made it to Radford Semele, the same place we stopped at on the way to Warwick. This time we kept well away from that underwater obstruction! Plenty of the afternoon left for Ian to check the batteries and me to make my soup. Still very warm outside so maybe time to get the chairs out and soak up the sun.
And today's wildlife,
