Since leaving Alrewas on Saturday morning we had a lovely journey with both boats (Chance and Malvolio) to Fradley Junction where we moored up just before lock17 at 12pm. We went to The Mucky Duck for a pint and some lunch and spent the rest of the day wandering around Fradley. The Lake walk was very interesting.
We ended up in the evening sitting on the deck enjoying the sunshine.
James and Craig enjoying a well earned beer! and the four of us relaxing. (marvellous these automatic cameras!)
followed by dinner on Bex and Craig’s boat.
Today (Sunday) we all had to sadly go our separate ways as Bex and Craig had to turn around and head back to Mercia Marina while we continued on towards Great Heywood.
(Bex and Craig leaving) Thanks for a great few days guys and hope its not too long until we meet up again.
We passed Armitage and just had to take this picture of you know what!
It has been so hot today, in fact, too hot to be outside all day. We think most boats either moored up early or didn’t move at all because it was just too hot to travel!
Because of the heat we have not made Great Hayward but have moored just past bridge 70 outside Rugeley. A good spot to dry the washing that we did while travelling along today. Don’t think it will take very long to dry in this heat!
