Hecky Thump, it is windy out now.
We decided to leave our lovely weekend mooring and head off towards Claydon Locks. Now when we left the mooring it was overcast and breezy, that soon changed into blowing a hooley and chucking it down with rain. The plus side of moving in this sort of weather is no one else is moving, so we only saw one boat and that was a Canal and Rover Trust work boat and we met that at a bridge ’ole. Bows touched but nothing to bother about.
The highlight of the journey was a rainbow in the dark skies.
We had our first lift bridge of this cruise and it was open .
With the thought there may not be any mooring spaces above Claydon Locks we decided to moor up on a mooring at Glebe Farm, which is just north of the locks. The wind actually helped with the mooring up, blowing us into the piling and it will definitely keep us pinned against it as it is really blowing up a storm outside.
Lunch is cooking and we will see what tomorrow brings.
