Return trip continued

We set off in much cooler weather than yesterday, which was better for the locks, we started with the Buckby lock flight, then at the top lock did the necessary 'services', we then turned back onto the Grand Union Leicester Section, up to the Watford Flight.  We didn't have to wait long, there was a boat coming down, one already in the pound above the first lock, and then we were off as there was nothing else coming down.  The lockies said it had been really quiet, they had only had one boat down and a few up all morning.  We then continued through Crick tunnel to Yelvertoft Marina.  We are going to stay here for about a week, so no more blogging until we are back on the cut.

Stoke Bruerne Locks - yesterday sunny skies!
