A Day of Rest

Today we are taking some time out. A bit of cleaning and some food shopping.
It really is great when you don't have to be anywhere too soon.

Yesterday was a busy day, 12 miles and 10 locks, 5 of which were at Fradley Junction.

At the first lock of the morning in Alrewas, we were pleased that we had pushed on the night before, as the River Trent section between Wychnor and Alrewas was closed in the morning. If we had stopped at our original planned stop, we would have been delayed a day or so.

A beautiful misty start anyway, at 10am no less!

The approach to Fradley Junction -

A short stop at Fradley to fill up the water and a longer stop waiting on the locks, very busy junction on this Saturday.  Once through the locks though, a very pleasant trip through to Rugeley, Little Haywood and Great Haywood.

Some lovely views from Rugeley to Little Haywood -
