Sun Rise Near Weston

Yesterday we decided to stay put in our peaceful spot a few bridge before Weston. The boat needed a good clean and Eric wanted to check the batteries. The boat looked better for a while until the hairy Ben added hairs to the carpet! Outside the boat has one clean side and one dirty side as it's not on the towpath side so it doesn't get a wash although we have seen some enthusiastic boaters walking the gunnels to do this job!

Ben and I walked into the solitary shop in Weston to get a newspaper, looking at the road signs I hadn't realised we were just five miles by road from Stafford. We enjoyed a lovely sunny day with the washing blowing on the rotary line. Lovely to be able to dry it outside.

I woke early this morning just in time to see the sunrise at 5.30 am, this photos was taken a few minutes before it came over the horizon by the railway footbridge. As usual the photos don't do the sunrise justice but you get the idea.

Today we're off to just above Deptmore Lock on the Staffs & Worcs Canal after we've winded again so we're heading towards Radford Bank......a good place to pick up our visitors tomorrow. Lisa and Gwen are coming to stay and Gwen is delighted with her own suitcase and the fact that the boat will be moving!
