Not very far

I didn't bother to post yesterday as we moved less than a mile, just from Saltisford Basin up to the Cape.

Today we didn't put in much cruising time as it was time for a Tesco stock-up. We left our moorings this morning and headed down through the two Cape locks, then moored again just over a mile further on to go to Tesco. We couldn't get on the Tesco moorings as they were full so we had to lug all our shopping over the bridge, but I now shouldn't need anything much until we reach Milton Keynes. I like shopping in 'local' shops but they can be expensive for a 'big' shop.

After that it was on through the rest of Warwick, past Leamington Spa and out into the country near Radford Semele. I would have liked to see what Leamington had to offer but I think the cats would have gone mad if we had moored another night in town. We will have to visit next time we pass this way.

Tomorrow's weather forecast is for rain and more rain so we will probably stay here until Wednesday.

Today's (and yesterday's) journey 5.6 miles and 2 locks

So far this year we have travelled 370 miles, 335 locks, 34 lift bridges and 13 tunnels

Since Ray retired we have travelled 1100.7 miles, 982 locks, 55 swing bridges, 38 lift bridges and 38 tunnels
