No, no reference to the post content this evening; more a reference to where I am posting from - the sliding back hatch on the roof of Khayamanzi! Only a couple of bars of GPRS inside but up here on the roof I'm zipping along with 3 bars of 3G bordering an HSDPA connection!
So this evening you get full size pictures again!
Set off this morning and an hours run towards Autherley Junction and the turn onto the Staffs. and Worcester.
A chilly start to the day with the sun attempting to push through a very hazy sky. Wolverhampton Boat club
were all out and so there was a huge amount of traffic around but spirits were high and queues at locks were all very pleasurable experiences with much merriment and laughter - just the way boating should be!
Queuing for one particular lock and a boat coming the opposite direction announced its arrival with a horn blast and an aim towards me! It wasn't long before it became clear to recognise the outline of Andrew Denny on NB Granny Buttons
. It was great for him to be able to pull up and have a longer chat than the normal passing shout.
Onwards to our final mooring just after Acton Trussell. A beautiful evening with a bright sun and cloudless blue sky.
....so a BBQ just had to happen, (hence the late post this evening!)
Tomorrow, on through Great Haywood, (stopping for water,) past Tixell, (that's unusual for me,) and towards Rugely where we need to stop for shopping as supplies are running dangerously low.
