Barrow on soar

In order that Shell Bell is back in Willington for the weekend we needed to start thinking about turning round.  However, we wanted to go to Barrow upon Soar so we decided to head there and get back to Loughborough for tonight. 

We had a plesant journey, very quiet and we passed several magnificent houses on the way.  We got caught up with some very young canoists but luckily their instructors had got them well in hand and the incident was no where near as traumatic as the yachts. Sheila also managed to stay on the deck. 

After a walk into the village, where our shopping app. directed us to a supermarket ,we headed back down Barrow deep lock for Loughborough.  We locked down (get the jargon) with a couple who were on holiday and doing the Leicester Ring in ten days.  They had  some long days cruising ahead
