Our first lock of the day was Gailey passing by the Roundhouse Shop before it opened. Some of the locks hereabouts had nice flat beams which are so comfortable when you’re leaning back against them to open the gate. Here we are passing under Lynehill Bridge 83 approaching Penkridge. It was lunchtime so we moored up and had a snack and I walked to the Co-op and Bakers Shop. Then we cracked on down Penkridge Lock and pootled on along to moor at Baswich. Today we exchanged locks with a shiny nb Ebony, a 522 reg number having it’s first week out on the water!

This was one of our longer cruising days, a total of 10 miles, 11 locks in 6 hours taking  an hour off at midday.

Hello Ann, how kind of you to send a message, I so enjoyed our short lived chat the last time we met at Rugby. I hope you are well, and your grandchild (ren)as last time their imminent arrival was due. I guess that was just before the winter, is that 1 or 2 years,? how time passes !!. today I had a marathon, left Stratford and did 16 locks solo, to Wilmcote, all against except the last 4 when 1 boat passed me all day. A day off tomoro. It would be lovely if our ships pass, please do also drop in. Many thanks again for the kind thought. Jacquie x
