Ice on the canal again this morning, but not too thick so we decided to shove off anyway. Off at 11:00, through the thin stuff and hit the ½” thick stuff just after the 1st bridge! Nearly reversed back, but decided to press on. Encountered sections of frozen canal all day, some thicker than others, though they became less frequent after Market Bosworth.

A beautiful sunny day, warm in the sun, but considerably colder in the shade.

Stopped for the night at the Battlefield Moorings near Shenton at about 15:30. The longest day’s cruise for some time!

Locks none, miles 8.
