Wanted !!!!!!!!!


IMG_3323We pulled pins from Alrewas at 08.45 and soon got on the water point before the lock to fill up with water.

IMG_3329Dropping down onto the river Trent section and Curly is pleased to see that its very safe to travel on Rivers as she has always been a bit uneasy about travelling on rivers.

IMG_3330I don't think I would get away with calling our boat this …

IMG_3333We stopped at Barton marina and had a quick look around. You never know when you might need to stay in a marina. Although the prices in the shops were a bit steep the marina itself was very competitive.

IMG_3335There are lots of shops in the marina and this one has a great sign on the door. Needless to say Carolyn was hired and was gone for hours !!!

IMG_3350Going through Burton upon Trent the home of Brewing and Curly is asking what a brewery is .

IMG_3356Earning her passage and Curly puts her back into it as she helps Carolyn with the locks.

After 4 hours of cruising we moored outside of Willington marina. Tomorrow we will have a look around Mercia marina before continuing are cruise to Shardlow and beyond.
