We haven't come far just a short cruise to Coxbank, we didn't go any further as there's a Beer festival at Audlem so we expected it to be busy down the bottom of the locks. We walked down the locks to Audlem with Ben the dog in the afternoon, it certainly lacked the festival atmosphere and was surprisingly quiet in the village. There was some live music outside 'The Lord Combermere' with a covered area in case of rain......which soaked us on the way back to the boat. At 'The Shroppie Fly' Eric had a pint, lots of keg beers on offer but he was happy with a pint of Pedigree. Outside the pub the wasps were a nuisance so we didn't stay long.
On Sunday morning we were prepared for the rain but it didn't rain while we were out on a walk down to Audlem to pick up a Sunday paper. Lots of people about with boats going up and down the flight and of course the dog walkers were out in force while the sun shone. Back on the boat to cook those lamb steaks from Adderley Wharf Farm Shop, they smell delicious as they cook..........and I'm sure Sunday lunch today will be better than last Sunday's even though I'll have to wash up.
