Memo to self ........

Never trust a stoppages website!!  We left Ely on Minday heading, slowly, towards Hermitage. The intention was to go through tomorrow and be in St Ives for Market Day on Monday. The pace was, to say the least, relaxed.

Last night we moored at another favourite spot. As Hermitage are on winter hours, we phoned today to book our passage through tomorrow pm. Almost as an aside, learning that the works on St Ives Lock have overrun by three weeks and it is still closed. East Anglian Environment Agency website, updated on 15 March, still says work completing on 1 March!!

Oh well, we will just have to stay here a bit longer.
