We had a lazy morning and set out late to finish the Buckby/Wilton flight. We were pleased to pair up with a historic boat, Collingwood, a single hander. We always learn a trick or two and because we know so many single handers, are happy to help where we can. It was a good journey.
We pulled up at Bridge 18 to have coffee - well after coffee and lunch time - and for Elizabeth to shop for wool. The queue of boats and the bridge are down the hill from the Heart of the Shires shopping 'village', a quick walk from the canal. Christmas wool was acquired whilst Pete took advantage of the engine heated water for breakfast dishes.
We set out again and so enjoyed the rain free Autumn colours. Beautiful. We passed our old coal supplier, Jules Fuels, moored near Dodford and we passed the tiny Weedon Marina. We found that moorings were easily available in Weedon and we moored up just before 4. Pete pulled us in and E did the lines. Good day!
