IMG_4957We pulled/lifted or what ever you do with nappy/Armco pins at 07.00 from our mooring at Rugeley and soon hit the narrows where Carolyn had to go ahead on foot to make sure it was clear for us to proceed.

IMG_4961Miserable looking old Sod, and he never bothered to speak to us.

IMG_4968Through Armitage the home of the sanitary ware factory and there is no way that you can pass without taking a picture of a toilet.

IMG_4975Now this is different. Normally boats will pull a small butty , but this one is on the front and is pushed along.

IMG_4977 Its only firewood…….OCD or just very organised ?

IMG_4979Our favourite and best looking lock on the system with a lovely looking boat as well . Woodend lock on The Trent and Mersey Canal near Fradley junction.

After 7 hours and 20 minutes of cruising we arrived above the very large retail park before Fazeley junction,Tamworth. With a rest from cruising tomorrow we will stay here for the day. I'm sure Carolyn will be very happy here with all of that shopping to be had and I don't suppose I will be seeing much of her.
