It was very blustery at times today on the Trent, but it did get better as the day progressed and we had a very enjoyable cruise. Moorings were scarce and we ended up cruising to Newark before we found any suitable to get Paul & Jo’s dog Charlie off the boat. She did have to have a toilet stop at Hazleford lock, the only way we could get her off was by her life jacket attached to a rope and Ian and Paul lifting between them. Looking forward to eating out in Newark tonight.
