So here I am on The Erewash Canal. I moored up near the railway bridge which is a good walk from the Guinness supply. I am here because the 48 hour moorings are still full of those people who have been waiting for the river to come off red.
The river came off red five days ago (that’s 120 hours) so you can probably understand I am a bit miffed that I could not moor on the 48s, but I suppose that is the difference between a real boater/CCer and piss taker.
Ho hum who am I to complain? I am the one who when stuck for seven weeks moved every 2/3 days. I am the one who at the first sign the river was passable cast off and MOVED 12 miles on the Soar, the Trent/Derwent and the T&M. Then three days later moved back on the River Trent/Derwent to the Erewash.
