Yesterday we left Stone behind, as usual Ben and I walked and Eric steered the boat. We worked through the locks often queuing to go through. Little boat traffic from Stoke on Trent so we had to turn each lock before we could go through. Going up NB Beeston Castle passed and shouted 'I like your blog' but I have no idea who was crewing her. If you read this - who are you?
Finally stopping just after Barlaston before the Wedgewood Factory. A busy towpath with lots of walkers and bikes, bikes and more bikes. Ben had a bark as they passed. I've been trying to distract him with a treat as they pass- sometimes it works! A good satellite signal so I could watch Holby City.
Today- Wednesday we're heading through Stoke on Trent and it's raining but never mind as I won't have to water the pots. I am delighted to say my tomato plants are sporting several red cherry tomatoes - not having grown them before I was concerned we'd have to make green tomato chutney. I doubt if they'll make it to a salad- I'll be eating them off the plant!
