Yesterday morning we moved the boats up a lock from Wolverley Court Lock to above Wolverley Lock where we had moored on our way to Stourport. Jill and I took the dogs for a couple hours walk seeing a bit more of the countryside in these parts.
Late afternoon I wandered up to Graham and Evelyn Booth's home to pick up a dvd that Graham had made for me. The dvd is entitled, The Water Boatman and is a series of programmes presented by Alan Herd about his journey around the Stourport Ring. Graham and Evelyn feature in the series as Nb Rome, their boat, was one of the boats used to transport the presenter on his journey.
Over a cuppa we talked about boats and all things boaty and you might note that I have added a link to Lockside Antiques on the sidebar, a business run by Evelyn that supplies rag rugs, traditional Measham pottery, brassware and ribbon plates and much more - double click on the image to link to Evelyn's website.
Nb. Rome, moored outside the Booth residence this morning as we passed
A cold and grey start but, A DRY START
Caxton entering the Cookley tunnel, all 65 yards of it
The sun has got its hat on now
Trees REFLECTED in the canal..
