We started off this morning before 8am and it was cool but slightly drizzly. As we approached Atherstone, it started to rain, not heavily, but steadily. The thought of doing 11 locks in inclement conditions didn't appeal so we have moored up. The rain has lessened but only temporarily we think.
Given about 5 boats have gone past since we moored, and given we cruised past them all in the last half hour of our boating, we think we stirred them from their breakfasts out on to the cut.
Now there will be a queue, and I am an NZer - I don't do queues, esp in the rain! I think we are here for the day, and as we are now ahead of schedule, that is fine.
