We stayed aboard on our mooring near Bridge 8 reading and listening to the radio while a storm raged outside all day. The next day there was a golden sunrise across the fields while we were having breakfast. Several boats passed by before we untied and joined them on a such a beautiful morning. We passed under Bridge 2 a turnover bridge, then up through the stop-lock at Autherley Junction.
As I stepped back on-board the sun was quite dazzling as we went under the bridge to turn left onto the Staffordshire and Worcester Canal. Very soon we were cruising through the narrows at Pendeford Rockin and on along to moor just short of Gailey
