We stayed put as planned today. The weather remains warm and sunny so we walked into the village a little over a mile away. The village has nearly everything a good village should have including a thatched roofed pub, The Rose Inn. As previously mentioned and only in the interests of supporting local businesses we lunched there. This pub unlike the one at Long Buckby is dog friendly.


Walking back to the boat we passed a field containing some Alpacas. These seem to be popping up all over the place now.


On return to the boat we saw that our exclusive mooring was not so exclusive, as we now have neighbours. Tomorrow we have 11 miles and 3 locks to navigate, so hopefully the weather will be as forecast, warm and sunny.
