Messing about in boats (Ashby Canal)

We were both becoming a little stir crazy last weekend so as a way of getting out in the fresh air we decided to hire a day boat on the Ashby Canal.

As usual we used the Ashby Boat Company and set out bright and early.
The weather was rather unsettled and very cold.
As usual the scenery was beautiful.
Unfortunately for us though the silt in the canal had built up and during the day we managed to run aground on more than one occasion.  I hate it when that happens as it can be quite scary.
I thought I had better take a picture of the blue sky before it disappeared.
And the first blossom of Spring.

It was a great day and we hope to get out there a bit more this year.
