We left our mooring above lock four early as a boat had come down past us. The locks were all in our favour then. Until we came to the one but last and the crew of four had turned it against us and their boat was just entering the top lock. So we pulled over and waited for them to descend. As they passed they said it’s all ready for you. So we replied that it had been ready for us before! They seemed quite oblivious to what they had done! Never mind the nice couple who were waiting at the top to come down opened the bottom gates for us to glide in. So for all the thoughtless people afloat their are some really lovely people around as well. Another lovely sunny days cruise, with no locks now for quite a while, phew!
As we came to Hartshill Yard we saw some familiar faces and exchanged a few words with the crew of nb Kalimi who followed us along for a while. We reached Nuneaton, moored up, walked into town, had a snack in Wetherspoon’s, then perused the shops. Popped into Sainsbury's to top up the food cupboards, then back to Oakfield for a restful evening, perfick!
