Soon after bridge 10 we caught up to the Swedes. It seems they were moving at just over tickover. They were taking things VERY carefully taking ages to go through bridge 'oles and passing boats. In fact they were so slow I had to keep putting AmyJo into neutral. There are several bends around this section making overtaking impossible but it was nice just to bimble along anyway. We followed them for over an hour before they moored up at the Narrow Boat pub, just on the bend before a blind turn into a bridge.

We told Richard two more boats would call later in the evening. He was happy to serve them whenever they arrived. We then continued on to Blake Mere. There we moored after the tunnel as this was the first place a mooring was free. Later Graham had walked further round and found better mooring spots but by the time we upped pins and moved two boats had arrived from downstream, though there was still plenty of space to be had.
Paul and Marie followed in the evening and arrived at 9:30pm. Chris had prepared everyone Chicken cooked in Cola, mash and veg. This was immediately served with grateful thanks to Chris from everyone. After the previous late night everyone then retired to bed after coffee.
