Rural idyll on the Leicester Section

We moved away from the Foxton/Market Harborough/Debdale Wharf area at last today. Our passage up Foxton Locks was uneventful; we stopped at the top for an extended coffee/lunch break before moving on to our current mooring at Downtown, a mile and a half south of Welford Junction.

On the way we passed fields of sheep and lambs, a bluebell wood and these cows with their calves.

We won't be disturbed by any road traffic here, but a percussive bird scarer was banging away until dusk. I wonder if it will wake us at dawn!

Tomorrow we have arranged to meet Terry and Christine on Grace at Norton Junction. It will be good to see them again.
