A lovely warm spring day and as we motored on to the bottom of the Ashby Canal we were able to enjoy an abundance of wild life including these lovely recently born chicks.
We turned onto the Coventry Canal and passed Charity Dock once again with its ever growing display of figures and scenes. This time it appears to be a wedding.
As we approached Hawksbury Junction we entered a queue of 4 boats for the stop lock, the most boats we had seen together all week. Its an interesting spot to wait however and we were soon through and moored up just before the Coventry Cruising Club for lunch. As the weather forecast for next day was not too good we decided to press on a little further and moored near Nettle Hill for the night. The weather was so good that we got the chairs out and enjoyed afternoon tea and a glass of bubbly in the sun on the bank.
