April 27th 2012 Better than predicted

An early start today in grey murky and chilly conditions. Making good progress we soon arrived at the first of the three swing bridges we would pass through today. The weather was improving although not warm it was getting brighter and better than the forecast we watched last night. Around noon we arrived at the top lock in Blackburn and locked down the six locks with N.B. Midnight Lady, Skippered by a lady. By now the weather had improved even more and we had blue skies and the sun was shining, albeit weakly. Clearing the locks we carried on until we reached Riley Green and moored at the the pub. We had a nice meal at the pub and a couple of pints of Peroni to help it down.

Today 16 miles  6 locks   3 swing bridges
