Hello Sue And Vic At Grindley Brook

My big bloke Eric with Sue and Vic

This morning bright and early, NB No Problem pulled in front of us with Sue and Vic onboard. Lovely to see them but only time for a chat and a photo before they were on their way down the locks at Grindley Brook. I hope it doesn't take seven years before we meet again, although you may still be at Norbury with or without that smokey engine!

We topped up the water tank before we were on our way, stopping just short of Marbury in lovely sunshine. We shared the locking and the steering today. At Quoisley Lock we bought a few things from the lock side  ......fresh duck or hens eggs , sticks, logs, firelighters, home grown potatoes and onions were all on sale. We didn't stop at the Willy Moor Lock pub but we had a beer from the fridge with our lunch.  Here's some photos of the day.
