14th May 2011 so far so good

six locks later

A long day today as we make our way from Branston back to Willington via Barton Turn.  We have to do this because Shell Bell is too long to turn round in the canal.  Six locks today.  Getting the hang of things now.  A total of ten miles with only a short stop for lunch.  We saw the canal mural at Horninglow  on our way back but didnt have the camera out. So much to think about!!!!  when we arrived back at the marina the wind was gusting but Captain Norwyn got us safely berthed – not in our berth but next door – who cares?  We’re chillin. Another nice pub meal.  Margy and Marcus are going back home tomorrow – for a rest.  Be interesting to see if they come back again.  Beware future guests – there are jobs for all.
