Yesterday we went into dry dock and had our leaking stern tube repaired. We had the stern tube, shaft and bearing replace and all is now tickety boo. So a huge thank you to Welford dry dock.
Travelled 8.37 miles, worked 1 lock in a time of 3 hours and 10 minutes.
We left the Welford Arm at 8.50am and were the second boat down through the lock. At Welford Junction we turned right to head for Foxton at 9.25am.
Between North Kilworth Wharf and Husbands Bosworth Tunnel an Ash Tree had come down across the towpath and canal. We have reported it to the C&RT.
Have chickens will travel. Fresh eggs everyday for the boater who owns this and its chickens.
We made Foxton at midday, just right for a spot of lunch. The sun is doing its hardest to come out, but it is very hazy and humid at the moment, so I reckon we are in for some thunderstorms later on.
