I must change the date on the camera - we're 2 days out - and the time is wrong!
It is lovely to be here again, and with a 3G signal. It wasn't that many years ago when Dave would have to stand on the roof of the boat just to get any kind of mobile signal. We were very pleased to see a pair of grebe here, but as usual, the photos didn't come out. We are almost out of earshot of the trains, we've been within earshot of the west coast main line for months - being stuck in Atherstone, then the railway follows the line of the canal .
Oops. I wonder how long that boat has been there....
I didn't post the following photo of what must be one of the muddiest lock approaches on the system - Colwich. I knew it would be bad so thankfully I put my wellies on.
