Almost home.

2.5 miles 21 locks in 3hrs 25 mins.
 
After a torrid nights sleep for us both, with no explanation as to why, we were drinking tea at 4.40 am. Breakfast was had at the Hatton locks café at 9 am to give us sustenance before setting off down the locks.
Last chance to see the Autumn colour at the top of the locks.
Having had a lovely cooked breakfast it was time to start working it off.
Goodbye to the café.

Down we go.
We had Narrow boat Independence with Lesley and John join us 6 locks down, which made life a lot easier for all of us.
There was plenty of water coming down the flight.
We really did have a lovely time with them both. They very kindly bought four bag of coal from us, which was nice. We said our "Goodbyes", as they were heading to the Cape of Good Hope for a meal.
We are now moored at Budbrooke junction, just a stones throw from the Saltisford Arm and our home mooring.
