|Coming through Cowley Tunnel|
We spent a quiet night at Gnosall, apart from the noisy crows at four o'clock in the morning and their deposits on the boat. Eric got a Freeview signal so we watched that as he couldn't get a satellite signal with all the trees. We bought this gadget from http://www.beststuff.co.uk. It's got 27866R-UHF/DVBT Signal Finder on the box.You join the aerial cable to it and rotate the aerial on the pole until you get a green light. Usually we have no idea which way to point the aerial!
A late start after yesterday's long day and we cruised to Wheaton Aston stopping to get diesel at Turners where at about 79p for 0%. We usually claim 20% propulsion, making it a bit dearer but 117 litres cost £101 so I'm not grumbling. Ben and I had a three mile walk according to the mileposts, but the last mile seemed a lot longer.
There was actually a mooring space after the bridge so we moored up to await the rain. It came as we reached the boat after a walk to the local shop.
