I set off from Coventry about lunch time. I dont like the canal from Hawkesbury to Coventry, its dirty and abused. I cleaned up no litter on the canal apart from at Longford Bridge, but I did do the Basin. On arrival back at Hawkesbury the same three boats were on the water point that were there Friday. So I have no water, there being no water in the basin. I did go up the lock but was reluctant to get water from there so I came back down again, collecting a bag of rubbish from around the lock including a disposable nappy. Some people are disgusting!
It was getting dark when I arrived at Marston Junction and turned on to the Ashby just one more mile and I moored up at bridge 5.
After dinner I went to the Corner House for a Guinness the price list says £3.15 but the girl said said its gone up. “But that’s the advertised price you have to sell it at that price,” I told her. She was adamant. Even at £3.20 I think its the cheapest pint I have had since I set off.
