On the way we were hounded by a boater who coundn't wait to pass us, and we were not going slow. There was no one for miles and suddenly he was there on our tail. To be fair he did indicate to me that he wanted to pass so I pulled over and slowed on a straight and he managed to pass safely. He was gone in no time so without doubt he must have been going more than the 4MPH limit.
My back and legs were getting stiff due to standing for a long time so decided to let Lin steer the boat and I briskly walked the towpath for about a mile. I've been told to exercise in this way after a spine operation and I have to admit it did help. I'll do it again tomorrow.
We arrived at Hawkesbury, found a mooring spot and then had a cuppa and a natter with our friends Dave and Anne aboard N. B. Kernow. Later we had a meal in the Greyhound, washed down with a couple of pints of IPA. The food was really good and in ample quantities too. It's easy to see why they have such a great reputation.
Internet coverage is is excellent here, although there is only one bar on the scale it's 4G and I've not seen that before. It's lightning fast compared to our connection at home so I guess I'll be using up my data allowance sooner rather than later.
