Barlaston - and a lovely day for a cruise

We're on our way again, taking advantage of a beautiful day, although we havent moved many miles it is nice to be moving again.  We've met up with all our old friends in Stone - mainly those displaced by the Rising Sun being demolished.  We were also fortunate enough to meet up with an ex work colleague from my previous life in the rat race,  (Hi Jean & Lawson)  and had a very pleasant evening with a couple of pints of Titanic in the Royal Exchange. 

So it's au revoir Stone and the little wood duck

Nemo hasn't been swimming for a while ....  I hope this isn't an omen ....

Damage to BR98, where a car hit the side of the bridge

Thanks for leaving your broken plastic snowman stuffed into the hedge, bah humbug!

Again, the railway follows the line of the canal, this time rather too close for comfort i think

Barlaston, and again, there's no other boats here, apart from a couple outside the pub.  As I was taking this photo, Nemo leapt out of the trees opposite the boat on to an unsuspecting passer-by giving her the fright of her life.
