We are moored just past Bratch tonight having negotiated the famous lock. Here Joe is fitting the covers for the houdini hatches before we all settle down for the night.
Yesterday we stayed put because of the weather; rain, hailstones and snow and a pub close by. Well what could one do, it would have been foolish to venture out in such awful weather with our guests so we availed ourselves of the hospitality of the Navigation Inn at Greensforge for lunch AND dinner.Here is guest,Danny 'the Gnome', enjoying the ambiance of the local pub.
Apparently the guest bed IS comfortable which is good news for all our potential guests!
This morning we awoke to a crisp sunny day and set off after a cooked breakfast towards Wombourne where our first guests left us to return home to Colchester.
Lessons to be learnt:
A) Secure new stainless steel chimney - or you will lose it in the cut
We will be calling in the Limekiln Chandlers for a replacement tomorrow - bugger!!!
