We were up and about reasonably early this morning, on another lovely sunny day, and slipped away from our moorings just after 8. Less than an hour later we were turning through the iron bridge into the marina.
Adrian put us expertly onto our pontoon, we packed, and left in the car bound for the IWA festival at Burton on Trent.
The show ground seemed quite quiet, although we were there not long after the gates opened. We had a look at the commercial boats, walked round the stands, bought a few things, talked to lots of people, had an ice cream, and walked along the towpath to see the visiting boats.
Then is was back to the car for a really good run home. We'll be making the most of having our own boat, by having another few days on board next weekend.
