Just A Little Cruise Before The Rain

Leaving Brick Kiln Lock No.33

NB Bendigedig In Gailey Lock
Just two locks to work through today and a short cruise to get away from the constant buzz of the M6 motorway. Up and away by ten in the morning as we were hoping to moor up before the rain and Eric wanted to watch the Grand Prix coverage which started at midday.
We picked up some coal at Gailey Marine as we were down to half a bucket and then Ben and I walked alongside the boat as Eric cruised. Most boats were moored up today with just one passing us on the move. Of course when we stopped to tie up boats came from all directions so we had to hang on to the boat until they'd gone by.
The rain came as forecast but we were warm and dry. We'll see what the weather's like tomorrow!
