  1. I spotted a little Vulpes hidden between two longer boats in the Alvechurch region as I passed late yesterday morning . 42 locks was enough with all of them against me so I dined at the Eagle and Sun (set) and saved the last 3 until this morning arriving at 8.30.
  2. I take great pleasure in finding my boat interesting enough for people to take pictures and even film me. I enjoy finding old friends pictures and also notices I was in the opening credits of a recent canal program on a major Hanney.

  5. The marina only unfortunately. Twas Top of Stockton to Hockley Heath...thought I'd throw a swung bridge in fir good measure. ☺ Also spotted a Tawny Owl.
  6. They were both a bit doddery, but all credit to them for keeping the trip boat running. After 61 locks today I may be there Tuesday evening now..if I can get up in the morning.

  12. Depends on how hard it's raining. ...
