Along the Severn way to Bewdley

Yesterday we dropped down into the basin at Stourport, serviced Caxton and found ourselves a visitor mooring for the night.  I left Joe to run Widow Twanky's laundry - have tank of water, must use it - and I headed off with the dogs - destination, Bewdley, approximately four miles upstream from Stourport.  It was  lovely walk along the Severn Way - that will be the towpath to you and I.

I finally got back to Joe and the laundry just after 7pm - Joe had just started to put out the bunting as he thought I had left him though he was a bit concerned about the dogs...  We ended up with a takeaway meal and sat and watched a great programme about canals called The Golden Age of Canals on BBC4 - cracking programme with Joe and Keith of NB Hadar featuring towards the end.

This morning we upped sticks and moved through the two staircase locks on to the River Severn - tomorrow we are off to Worcester to find some sauce....
