Well it was for us, Muttley decided that he had to go out at 7.03am, there was nothing for it but to pull the pins early and move on. Thank you Muttley. We stopped for water just below Hinkley and were befriended by two wire haired Jack Russells, they were lovely but our menagerie didn't think so as they were confined to the boat, barking.
Hinkley was nothing special to look. It was too early to stop at the pubs and get a pint so we shot out the other side into some lovely countryside, The Ashby Canal is really beautiful in places, thats why it took us 5hrs to cover 4.5 miles, to Stoke Golding where we are now moored.
