Whistling in the Wind

The weather forecast today was for 16-20 mile an hour winds gusting to 35mph - at half six this morning, listening to the wind whistle around the boat, we were really considering staying in bed but we didn't. Just after half seven we we off heading north towards Stoke-0n-Trent and the turn off for the Caldon canal. I was swathed in wet weather gear that became a tea-shirt and a pair of shorts by the time we slipped on to the Caldon. So much for weather forecasts! We are now moored just outside Hanley Park, lunched and refreshed ready to push on to bridge 8 in order to access the shops and main market to replenish provisions. We will continue our cruise late afternoon heading for a quiet spot for our mooring tonight.
