Willington – Weston – Kegworth

Homeward stretch on familiar territory, although we went to the Coopers Arms at Weston for the first time and was very impressed. We were going to stretch it out another day, but as the weather was so nice and we were so close we decided to press on back to Kegworth.

This may be the last blog until we head north in March 2011. Many thanks for all the comments from friends and family, it has been an amazing time out and we have enjoyed sharing it through the blog. Also thanks to the company and friendships of Pip & Rog (nb Windsong), Lindsay & Paul (nb Teapot), Joan & Duncan (Alarch Wen), Jo & Paul (nb Repent at Leisure) who we have cruised along with, shared plenty of laughs, food and drink !! 

Happy Cruising, Karen & Ian – nb Serenity
