Despite being moored right by the junction every boat negotiated around us without hitting us, There is a nice little wildlife area around Fradley Pool quite close to the canal here. Early morning we slipped through the swing bridge and while we stopped to fill our water tank I walked down to the rubbish bins. The rain was turned on intermittently from then on while we cruised along and the steerer got a bit wet again. As we passed by Streethay Wharf we spotted ‘Granny Buttons’ hiding among the other boats. Several boats were out cruising and luckily we met them in easy passing places. We carried on to tie up on some rare 7 day moorings, just before the junction at Fazeley.
