The Yorkshire Rose.

It was another noisy night next to the A38 on Monday, so on Tuesday we moved on but not until the rain stopped. We arrived at Branston just before the rain came back. In the evening the sun finally came out and we walked round the lake. On Wednesday we stayed at Branston. When the weather cleared I took the opportunity to put two Yorkshire Roses on the side of Doublefracture. We bought then from a Graphics boat while we were at Alrewas. While still at Alrewas I had put two on the first side, now both sides were complete. Moored in front of us at Branston were a couple from Sheffield, They were telling us about their mooring at Shardlow. It sounds OK, perhaps we will look into Mooring there in the future, if we can get a place.
Thursday morning was wet again so we spent some time trying to finish the jigsaw we have been doing, however its all sky that is left so it is taking some time. In the afternoon we moved down to Shobnal Fields ready to go to the hospital for the results of some biopsies I had done. I'm pleased to say they were negative, good news. We aim to stop here again tonight, then head back down to Willington tomorrow.
