Yes, another song title, from a Disney movie this time, Aladdin. It was as if I had rubbed a magic lamp and all my wishes come true. Today has been amazing!
The boards had finally moved onto amber and the levels were still on the way down so off we headed onto The River Trent. Little scary at first and not knowing what quite to expect but oh my goodness it was fantastic. The scenery was breath taking!
The photos say it all:
It felt like we were doing 40 miles an hour ( slight exaggeration I know) but Foxglove handled really well cruising down the river.
It was just a totally different experience from travelling on the canals.
Fabulous little cottages and homes that people had made on the riverside.
It was just so idyllic.
It had given out rain and thunderstorms by midday but once again we had been extremely lucky as the sun shone the whole way until we moored up around 2 pm at Beeston.
It is now almost 4 pm and the thunder and rain has just started. We have been lucky.
Few more photos from today:
