Leaving Alrewas we made the short hop to Fradley junction where we stopped for a walk around . Its not a place we ever seem to spend much time in as it’s more of a tourist attraction with hundreds of people milling around on a sunny day.
We did spot this old car parked next to the pub at the junction.
Walking around the lake we did a bit of Sticking. We collect bags of dead fallen sticks/twigs and use them as Kindling to light the fire. Believe it or not I've actually seen some Boaters buying Kindling.
After a good walk around Fradley junction we pulled ropes from around bollards and headed up the last lock before the junction where we turned left onto The Coventry canal.
Passing Streethay wharf and its always a busy place with loads going on .
I bet all the other Horses are so jealous of the one with a multi-coloured coat. Carolyn said she thought he might be called Joseph.
One of the best weather vanes we have seen which just happened to be on top of an old farm house.
We moored up just before Hopwas and were soon joined by friends Tony and Jacqui on NB Timewarp who sell the brightest tiller pins and the tastiest fudge on the whole of the canal system.. Having not seen them for sometime it was good to have a catch up. We will spend a short time here before continuing our journey South.
