Cruising In Sunshine

Yesterday in sunshine, we left Tyrley Wharf and started down the five locks with a gentleman volunteer complete with oil can  who accompanied us oiling the gears and making life easier for boaters. As all the locks were set for us it was a quick descent and then we were on our way to Market Drayton. Room for us to moor up and a trip to Asda to do a shop. A lazy afternoon followed.

Today  it is another lovely sunny day and I walked on ahead with Ben the dog while Eric stopped to top up the water tank. He caught us up at Betton Cutting  where we got on board,  it's supposed to be haunted!  We continued on our way to  the top of Adderley Locks. Of course we had to buy lunch at the farm shop......a lovely pork pie to share and some eggs. 

Slow progress down the five locks as everyone was empty and had to be filled before we could go down the flight. We'd decided to work through the top two locks of the Audlem Locks to take us to moor ar Cox Bank. We'll need to go down ten locks to Audlem tomorrow as we have an appointment with Chris Jones, Beta engineer on Wednesday for our 750 hour service.
