Back On The Trent & Mersey Canal

Today we had to move as we needed to get some water and do the cassettes at Anglowelsh in Great Haywood. The wind is up but not like last night when we could have been at sea. Once the washing machine was started Ben and I walked on to see if there was room at the waterpoint and it was actually empty, so we moored up with a fight with the wind which had other ideas.We paid the £1 fee to use the Elsan as it's not a BW facility and pretty basic but needs must.

Eric wanted a change of scenery  so we decided to take a little jaunt up the Trent and Mersey Canal even though we need to be back in Great Haywood for the 3rd of June as NB Bendigedig is having a holiday in the marina, while we go visiting. The crew of NB Caxton  wondered if the new cream roof would cause problems with glare  but as we both have  'Reactolite' lenses in our spectacles anyway it was no problem. We  didn't go far stopping at Bridge 78 when a nice length of Armco was spotted just in time to watch the Spanish Grand Prix.
