Day three on the Nene.

We woke up to another bright and breezy day. On the move by 09-00 hrs.The first lock was a surprise as it had two v-gates like the canals.
Three locks on we stopped in Wellingborough to top up on water and visit Tesco. While we were moored up Trundlemere who winters at Foxes passed with another boat. we followed them for the rest of the day until they moored for the night at Cogenhoe. our day would continue for another two hours until we reached Weston Flavell. Today we did thirteen locks, some with the large wheels to operate them(saves going to the gym). The mooring is just outside the flood barrier, over looking the flood washlands. It's a lovely evening as we partake of a drop of vino, red for me white for Marlene. A perfect end to a perfect day.
