In the Lagoon

We set off yesterday at nine down through lock 15 to wind (turn) just above the next lock. Jill and I locked Matilda Rose through and then prepped the lock for Caxton's transit. Off went Caxton in MR's wake while we chatted and got ready for the re-emergence of our homes and the start of our journey to the Leek Branch of the Cauldon Canal. We were aiming to get back to Bridge 31 and the services at Park Lane where we were hoping to get a broadband signal and order a delivery from Tesco. We couldn't get any broadband signal so the re-provisioning plans were scuppered. We turned the boats and headed off up the Leek branch. What a trip. What a lovely canal! We are now moored in the 'lagoon' just before the Leek tunnel. There are only three boats here, Caxton, Matilda Rose and a cruddie 'fixture'. This is the most beautiful setting and I thinks we will be here for a few days.
