Newark to Gunthorpe

Had a very enjoyable Italian meal Tuesday evening at Il Castello, finishing the night with a last drink in the micro brewery Just Beer. Spent yesterday exploring the historic market town of Newark, lunching at the White Hart. Set off this morning in grey cloud, but still quite pleasant. Luckily we managed to moor at Gunthorpe where we have yet to decide which one out of the three places we are going to eat in this evening.

Keep an eagle eye out for us we are in Nottingham until at least Tuesday, maybe on the steps or along the Sainsbury's stretch.

We did see the boat, but you were not aboard. Sorry we couldn't stop and wait. Will catch up with you again later.
