After pulling pins at 09.00 from Willington the decision was made to stop at Branston (Birthplace of the famous Pickle) for the the rest of the day and the night .There's a large lake and of course a play park . Curly had great fun watching me getting in a pickle trying to climb to the top of a 5 foot wall. Eventually I made ….just.
After a night at Branston it was off again and towards Alrewas which is one of our favourite villages.With me doing the locks for the day we soon make good progress towards Alrewas ,or was it Carolyn's steering that was so good ???
We arrived at Wychnor lock and everything seemed to be OK on the river section so we just went for it. Passing the 13th century Wychnor and we came to the conclusion that some naughty person may have been messing around with the sign.
Safely through the river section and we picked up this mooring just after bridge 46 . Yet again we just had time to say hello to Terry and Pam on NB Roosters Rest as they passed us travelling in the opposite direction. We will meet up for that drink one day !!!!!!
We will spend a day or two here enjoying village life before moving on to our next destination ,when we decide where that is ….
