We stayed at Osberton yesterday, taking advantage of the fine weather to do a bit more work on Corbiere.

Last night, when Meg went out for her last constitutional, she seemed very interested in something.

The focus of her fascination turned out to be a pair of frogs making whoopee!

Today we got off around 11, cloudy for a start turning bright and warm later. A fairly uneventful day apart from the refitting of the frame on the stern of Corbiere. Carol had had it straightened in Worksop, but it wasn’t quite right.

With the boat wedged in one of the Forest Locks, and using a log as a packer and a mooring rope and hammer shaft as a spanish windlass, we were able to pull if into shape to fit.

We pulled over for the night at a pleasant spot just before Retford, where we stopped on the way up.
