Just a short post today. After yesterday's heatwave this morning woke us with the sound of heavy rain on the cabin roof. It was still warm but now the heavens opened and we heard on the radio of a months rain falling in three hours in South Yorkshire. Must not complain though at least it will help keep the levels in the reservoirs serving the cut here but not much chance of photos.
After breakfast we set of about 9am and was accompanied by the boat moored in front of us through last two locks as we left Gragrave. Its so nice to hvae the extra hands to work the locks when there are two boats together. With the constant rain we seem to be the only souls to brave the weather that by now was getting heavier to a point where I soon found out my waterproof coat isn't.

We plan to stay here now until lunchtime tomorrow to give Catherine chance to explore the town and it's spectacular castle. The wharf here is interesting and full of boats of all shapes and sizes. We are just enjoying the atmosphere and looking forward to Fish & Chips in Bizzy Lizzies restaurant on the quayside tonight.
