We're now on the Trent & Mersey and it's lovely to be cruising in this neck of the woods again, It's a couple of years since we last pottered around here. We did come down the T & M in October 2009, but we were on a mission at the time to get to Stourbridge, so didn't have time to stop.
Dave is sorting out the wood which we have collected over the last few days between Fradley and Armitage. This load is particularly appreciated due to the efforts involved in getting it. I positioned the bow of the boat to the off side bank for Dave to get off, however he stepped instead of jumped, and missed the bank completely & slid down into the water. Of course he had an audience of Sunday afternoon walkers but I did refrain from taking any photos. We caught up with the BW tree trimming boat gang yesterday which we had been following for the last couple of days, but there wasn't much wood left to be picked up - I don't know where it was going, I know boaters are quick when there's wood lying around, but not that quick!
