Reedley – Nelson – Barrowford

Spent a lazy Sunday at Reedley and had some retail therapy at the Juntion 12 retail outlet. Set off towards Nelson Monday morning, mooring outside Morrisons to restock. Ian was still feeling unwell with chest pains, so we took a taxi to the UCC at Burnley to get him checked out, before we set off into countryside. Luckily all the tests came back positive and was put down to gastric problems. We finally got back to the boat about six o’clock, due to the traumatic day we ended up staying on the Morrison moorings. We headed off the next morning with the 7 Barrowford Locks in front of us, the weather had only improved slightly. Mum and Dad arrived safely today to join us until Leeds.

Thanks, the weather has definitely improved and Ian is also improving. Good luck with the launch, it won't be long to wait now.
