We thoroughly enjoyed our cruising today, the wonderful peace and quiet and stretches of colourful wild flowers alongside the canal. The first lock of the day at Graham Palmer Lock where we met the only moving narrowboat.in the lock . Just waiting for their Jack Russell Terrier who had abandoned ship after a rabbit. He reappeared without it and they continued on their way.
We passed a couple of moored boat at Perry Aqueduct and some at the leisure moorings by the Navigation but nothing at all on the Visitor Moorings. We had the three Aston Locks all to ourselves and showed an interested walker walking from Queen's Head how a lock worked.
At Maesbury Marsh we pulled in by Canal Central now a coffee shop/tea room with a shop of stuff the tourists would like. There's canoes for hire as well as a horse drawn boat canal side. I took some photographs of the horse drawn boat.
