Well we got as far as lock fifteen due to every lock against us and having to grovel in th weed hatch again more bags and an old fender thank goodness I have a good sharp knife to cut the blasted thing away.

So off we toddle round on to the curley wurley and we come to devils elbow bridge and then the bend Roj kind of bogs it up just as we come across a lovely garden balcony built over the corner of the canal that nearly gets dismantled by the boat ...... It's fine more than Roj's nerves we get to wednesbury and he sails past the moorings so we are a little past that on other moorings behind a chain branded pub called the nicolodian A branded pup but useful for shopping if you want big shops also sainsburys etc A branded pup but useful for shopping if you want big shops also sainsburys etc Had enough of spelling and predictive text stuff and frankly today.....and it snowed

Bags, wire plastic cable
