He's a good Lad is our Hamish. When the locks are close together he will always walk with Carolyn and then patiently wait until we are through the lock. It was another good days cruise down to Tixall where we picked up a mooring just before the wide. With the wide being fairly full as it always is we ended up on our own just before the wide with no other boats around us.
We picked up this mooring in Rugeley just as the rain was starting. Mind you the rain never stopped Carolyn carrying out a bit of retail therapy in the town. Tomorrow we will have an even earlier start as we want to get near to Fazeley junction. Its a journey of just over 7 hours so it should be an enjoyable cruise.
