Well this finds us once again in Loughborough having spent a very pleasant interlude with friends. Dave and Joan joined us as Cossington Lock on Sunday. A lovely warm and sunny day. We cruised 3 locks with them arriving in Birstall late in the afternoon. This was followed by a lovely roast lamb dinner with all the trimmings, with apple pie for desert at their house in the evening. Monday morning Dave took Paul with him to the flying field and Paul got his hands on the joysticks for a while. Whilst he was away Sheree and Alec arrived. So after lunch we winded and headed northward once more. We thought that the trip back to Loughborough would be much more picturesque than a trip to Leicester. Also we have time before we need to be at Debdale for blacking in October. We were lucky enough to see kingfishers as well as heron whilst they were on board. It was a lovely couple of days with them on board. It will seem quiet over the next few days going back over the same locks without them. We will be heading out, back towards Birstall tomorrow.
