Moored at Foxton.

Travelled 5.1 miles, worked 1 swing bridge in a time of 2 hours.

We had a nice night moored in Market Harborough Basin and left this morning at 9.00 am with the sun shining and all well in my world. Before leaving we filled up with water and emptied the toilet cassette. The pump out for private boats is still not in use, it makes me glad we do not have a pump out.

We arrived at Foxton village and moored up before Black Horse Bridge, that was having tackled the swing bridge which did not work first time, but having played with the offending post which did not work yesterday, I got the bridge to work. So moored up at Black Horse Bridge we had lunch and then waited for our Tesco food delivery to arrive between 3 and 4 pm. Whilst waiting we got chatting to some lovely people who live in a house on the canal where we were moored, they were absolutely delightful and a joy to chat too.

At 3pm I walked up on to the bridge to wait for our food delivery which arrived just before 4pm. Unfortunately there were 17 items missing, which has never happened to us before, they have always been so good. Before contacting Tesco we moved the boat nearer to the locks and on to a mooring.

Moored up for the day, I contacted Tesco who were shocked that so many items had not been delivered. They are on the case and I am assured I will get the rest of my shopping either later today or sometime tomorrow.
