Today we left Market Drayton, Ben and I walking for a couple of miles then we were at Adderley Top Lock where a stop was made for some lamb steaks from the farm shop. I know I've said it before but the lamb is beautiful, it just doesn't taste like supermarket lamb. The pet lamb 'Jack' still lives on with the farmer saying so many people ask after him you couldn't really say he's been eaten!
Down the five locks of Adderley was speedy as lock gates were open for us and we didn't have to shut any with boats moving in both directions. A short cruise and two more locks, the first of the Audlem Flight and we moored up at Coxbank on pins, no room on the visitor moorings. No satellite signal either but the fishy shaped aerial works fine so we have Freeview.
As we had some lunch it actually hammered down with rain, we missed it again which was great. Salmon for tea with the heads and innards removed by the fishmonger in Morrison's.......a job I really don't like!
