Tyrley Locks To Market Drayton

On Saturday it was a lovely day after a misty start, the sun came out and we went down the flight of five locks. We did follow a boat down but at least we didn't have a queue like the half a dozen boats waiting to come up the flight. It took us two hours in all to do the locks and cruise the short distance to Market Drayton, lots of waiting around at the locks. A young girl was single handed going up so with no mooring in the first pound meant she needed help to prepare the next lock. One of the boaters in the queue helped her on her way.

Room for NB Bendigedig at Market Drayton so we pulled in and tied up. We walked into Market Drayton and got some food at Asda, we used the  granny shopping trolley as it's easier to with heavy stuff than shopping bags, Anyway I am a granny! Back on the boat we had a lazy afternoon and Ben's a hard life!
