We woke up this morning and realised the water had dropped, so much so that we were grounded, and the boat was leaning heavily to one side.
At 9.00am a boat was coming up towards a nearby lock. Pete went and helped open the lock which allowed water down, which helped re-float us. So we set off for Slaithwaite.
The weather has been very warm and sunny, with the occasional shower.
We had 11 locks to complete in 2 miles.
All the locks were empty, which meant we had to fill them up, bring the boat in and then empty them again, which took a lot of time.
We arrived in Slaithwaite at 14.00pm.
We will stay here until Monday morning, as we have had a number of bad reports about mooring in Huddersfield over the weekend.
We have had a quick look around Slaithwaite, and it looks lovely. We will take some photographs tomorrow and put them on here.
Having a great time and Wallace has made many friends
