A nice bright day as we bid farewell to the city of Leicester. Dozens of swans gather on this stretch as we head for Freeman’s Meadow Lock. I snapped this one coming in to land.
We did see a neighbour, Peggy Ellen, opposite but they didn’t seem ready to go so we pushed off … they came along later and caught us up. So, in convoy again – nice, as these locks can be heavy.
Kilby bridge for lunch & overnight.
A scenic spot. Evening meal was over in the Navigation. Friday night is fish night, so Steve had a Navigation burger (£6.95) and Viv had Thai fishcakes. Very tasty and good value with Adnams Broadside to wash them down.
