What day is it? This narrowboating lark does to confuse I.Oh yes, it is John’s birthday and we plan to chug on to Hinckley where we espied a steak house for a meal out. So it’s Market Bosworth to Hinckley some ten miles or so. We got to Stoke Golding and tied up for lunch when we were hit by a gale then a snow blizzard! Weird. Is May just next week??
The Ashby may be shallow in places, well, a lot of places and our big,heavy boat felt like we driving through treacle. Still it is very rural and pretty.
And I’m guessing these flags mark the Battlefield visitor centre?
Hard to see but the odd white marks in this photo are actually snowflakes – Toby has one!
Onwards to Hinckley . .
