This week we have done … Audlem to Adderley ---- all of 3 miles but 18 locks!
Yes, slightly more boats out this week - (a) because its half term and (b) the weather ---- lots of sunshine with a couple of frosty mornings.
Nothing much to report this week ----- no excitement to call any and we haven’t been very far ! One thing we have noticed this week though is lots of owls a-hooting in the evenings. In fact one night at Audlem they were obviously having a big party !
Got a brilliant wood haul today ---- Dai went off with Foxxie (routine thing that Foxxie has to have a walk along towpath when we first moor up somewhere) and discovered a mega branch which had fallen. It took us 2 trips to carry it back and then hours to saw it up. I do try to do my share of sawing but won’t win any prizes for Fastest Sawer in the West.
Since last blog we have done … 3 miles and 18 locks
This makes total since Setting Off ….. 822 miles and 829 locks
