Although bright, it was very windy yesterday, so we stayed put. There were still 3 or 4 boats moving, but struggling in the strong westerly.
I went for a 5 mile run in the morning, then we settled down and watched a film in the afternoon.

Away this morning at about 10:20, heading towards Hawkesbury Junction and the Coventry Canal. Early rain cleared before we left, but the wind, although lighter, is still with us.

Through All Oaks Wood . Can you spot the Ent on the right?

Past flooded fields

And the railway
A very steady run to just past the Coventry Cruising Club moorings, where I’d had enough of fighting the freshening wind. We moored in the lee of the M6 embankment, and will sleep tonight to the gentle murmer of traffic buzzing along 200 yards away.

In the lee of the M6

Meg enjoyed the morning, lay out on the counter in the sunshine.
Mags was busy baking inside. Tomato soup and apple pie for lunch when we stopped at 13:20.

Locks none, miles 8.
