It was then an early start on Thursday as we wanted to try and get a good mooring in Alrewas.
Carolyn working the swing bridge at Fradley junction. Then it was a right turn and onto the Trent and Mersey canal.
We have decided to spend a few days here. We have been to Alrewas before when we hired a boat several years ago and enjoyed the village very much. Now we have more time on our hands we intend to enjoy it a bit more. One thing we are determined to do is to go to the National Arboretum as we have been told it is a very moving place to visit.
So tonight it is the biggest rump steak you have ever seen with Carolyn's cream sauce and washed down with a bottle or two of an Australian Merlot
