The time has arrived for our annual holiday, although the blog is a little after the event, we felt we still needed to record it on the blog. Photos are mainly of the Caldon as we have put that many on already of the Trent and Mersey. We set off on Friday 28 June with friends Paul and Jo on nb Repent at Leisure, heading for Trent Lock at tea time, just managing to moor before the rain. After that we were very lucky with the weather and it got hotter and hotter.
