But it was worth starting the engine, because it has been such a beautiful day. I got to Alvecote about ten, and unloaded all the provisions from Bluebird. Chertsey was looking smashing after Jim's week of hard work - brass sparkling and paintwork gleaming.
We're aiming to get to Huddlesford around mid morning tomorrow as we reckon that'll be the best time to find a mooring at what I believe is a popular spot.
And now we are tied up listening to the birds singing with Hopwas Woods on one side and the River Tame on the other enjoying the evening sun.
