By the time we had a couple of lazy cups of coffee however the wind had picked up and a cool breeze was lowering the temperatures.
Undeterred we set off for a steady run into Lincoln. I had a hair appointment at 1pm so we ambled down the Fossdyke, moored up on our favourite spot outside the riverside centre and found a quick drink before hand. Hair done I then rejoined Liam for a beer with some friends before moving onto the Pyewipe for a swift drink and a bit of shelter from the now more frequent heavy showers.
We had decided already that we were going to have dinner in the Woodcocks on the marina. We have not been for a long while although neither of us was quite sure why. So in the company of friends and their daughter we enjoyed a nice meal, my goats cheese and vegetable lasagne was really very nice, after which we headed back to our home berth and settled in for an early evening ready for work this morning.

We are having a thoroughly lazy day today. We had a nice lie in this morning followed by a lazy breakfast.
We are now heading into Lincoln to do a spot of shopping.
Later we have to head back to Sheffield for a family party but I will drive us back to the boat late this evening so that we can enjoy a full day of boating tomorrow.

I think we will both be glad when 5pm comes around and we can jump in the car and head back to Burton Waters to spend some time on the boat. A lie in is in order in the morning I believe. All of this waking up early to the alarm clock is a bit overwhelming after so long off.
It will be a bit of a broken up weekend of boating however. We are down at the marina tonight and will spend most of tomorrow there but then we have a family birthday party to attend in Sheffield tomorrow evening. So we will be driving back to the city and then later in the evening I will be driving back as I have a hair appointment in Lincoln on Sunday morning.
Still we will get some boating in and we can have a day tomorrow chilling out and relaxing in Lincoln.
