Today dawned fine and dry, but with a brisk westerly wind. Untied and off at about 10:45.
This is a very quiet section of the canal, not just in terms of traffic, but bankside as well. The navigation winds through arable land, avoiding the local villages. Still very attractive even at this time of year, with the leafless trees etched sharply against a grey sky.
We were chased by the rain all day, occasionally being caught by a few spots, but never amounting to anything.

We had intended to moor at Crack’s Hill, but the water was too shallow to get close enough to the bank.
Cracks Hill and Shetland ponies.
So we continued on to Crick, past a couple of hundred yards of empty designated winter moorings on Crick Wharf. Finally stopped just before Crick Tunnel, at about 15:15.
