We started our day in Namur finding low water pressure when Emilie filled the kettle. After dipping water and fuel tanks we found we were unexpectedly low on both (the joys of learning our née boat), so our mission for the morning was to top up on fuel and water. This is not as easy as one would think on a river!
After a brief search up the Mueuse to unsuccessfully find water at the yacht haven we back tracked and got back on course turning up the Sambre river. At our first lock we found a water fill point with great pressure and filled up our water tanks in 15 minutes.
I located a service station over the road from the river at the next bend, so we pulled alongside the river bank and carted two 20L jerry cans over the road.
The afternoon was spent briefly exploring this new town that had little to offer within walking distance so returned to the boat. Back at the boat Emilie did some school work with Issy and Max and I spent the afternoon getting to know the boats switchboard while wiring in the 240V Hot water cylinder.
Tomorrow we have a big day and over 10 locks with nowhere to stop so it was good to enjoy a relaxed Sunday.
