I spoke too soon yesterday. “No frost for 2 nights now”. Woke up this morning to a frozen canal, frost on the trees and grass and a freezing mist hanging over everything.

More Frost and Ice
Waited till nearly 11:00, hoping someone else would be moving to break the ice, but we had to get going as we’d arranged to be at Trinity Marina by lunchtime.
It was a cold 3 miles, taken slowly because of the ice.
We arrived about 12:30, manoeuvred into our allocated berth, plugged in the mains cable and went inside to defrost. We’re stopping here for a week, leaving next Thursday.
I’ve got a car organised from Enterprise here in Hinckley, and we’ll be visiting family over Leicester way over the festive season.

On Berth C25
Here’s one way to save diesel – PEDAL POWER!
Locks 0, miles 3.
