So we still didn't make it off the ditch this weekend but we did stray a little further from home with the eight mile jaunt to Torksey Lock.
It was a pleasant enough run on Saturday with the sun shining, it was cold out though and the heating was on pretty much all day which made the boat toasty warm but we felt the difference when we got off to walk to the pub.
Sunday wasn't a great day though, bitterly cold and wet. Again the heating was on all day, so we were warm and dry on board as we cruised back to base to spend the afternoon on our home berth watching a couple of films while the rain lashed down outside. We finished off the evening with a home cooked meal of pork fillet, new potatoes in a home made cheese sauce and a selection of stir fried vegetables. A nice way to end a relaxing weekend.
Next weekend promises not to be quite so laid back, but more on that later in the week.
