To date : 1227 miles, 859 locks
The weather forecast was for a bit of drizzle today. We figured as long as we got through the one lock left between us and the actual junction at Fradley it would be fine. It's not so bad cruising in the rain with no locks to do and not much in the way of wind.
There's an absolutely massive retail complex near Fazeley junction. We walked a mile or more to get to it last time and the walk was along very busy roads. I recalled Dot on nb Ewn Ha Cul once mentioning that there was a much better spot to moor for access to those shops. She was right! We found her suggested location and it was a pleasant enough walk across a field to get to right by the retail park. Thanks Dot!!
Tore forwarded us a copy of the survey to date and we couldn't be happier. Only three very minor things to be addressed, two of which Mick dealt with immediately with a few screws and a piece of timber! The last to "sleeve" and secure a couple of hoses and wires in the engine bay to prevent chaffing..... as this is relating to the engine it will have to be dealt with someone other than Mick! So, it's all good so far.
