At Goldstone Wharf

Not a lot has happened this week ….. We waved off Fred and Lisa on Saturday morning as their holiday had come to an end.   We did spend the Friday evening in The Navigation having a few beers and a meal.     Left Gnosall on Monday up to Norbury and then moved from Norbury this morning and are now moored at Goldstone Wharf.

We have been expecting some horrific weather as forecast but, to be honest, yes,  we had a bit of wind this week, but on the whole it’s been ok with quite a bit of sunshine although a bit nippy at times but no serious frosts, just a bit of a “hit and miss” effort last night.    Main thing is that no ice on canal yet - this time last year we’d already been totally iced in for just over 2 weeks.

When we got to Goldstone Wharf this afternoon we went greenery gathering so I can make the Christmas wreath and decorate inside the boat with some holly.   Will have to be getting the other decs out from under the bed so we can start to get into the festive spirit!!

Since last blog we have done … 15 miles and  1 locks
Total since Setting Off ….. 1539 miles and  1211 locks
