Hartford Marina to Godmanchester
2.5 miles, 1 lock
First job of the day was for Chris to return the hire car whilst I completed the unpacking. A lot of 'stuff' came back with us including Monty's kibble to see him through to early October, plus a few essentials for us, not forgetting the wine! It was odd having to decide what cold and wet weather gear we might need later in the year when we are in the middle of a heatwave.
Once all the jobs had been done, we moved to the fuel jetty, filled up, gave our access and electric cards back and we were on our way. It was the first time for a long time that the sky looked like this. Not a drop of blue to be seen today.
Godmanchester lock was against us, but it did not take too long to get through. The moorings at the side of the lock were empty and so was the space,
that is fast becoming 'our mooring' between the two weirs. It was just too tempting not to stop, so we did.
What a splendid situation for a thatched cottage - right by Godmanchester's Chinese bridge.
It had been a busy weekend - a quiet night was called for.
