The forecast for today was dry and bright, and for a change was correct. Cool morning, with a mist on the water when I took Bruno out for his morning walk.

A really enjoyable run through Burton, past Barton Turn and through Alrewas. Quite a fast flow on the river section through the village, had to use a few revs to get across the stream to the lock.

Had a problem with a sticking ground paddle at Wychnor lock, reported it to BW.

Stopped quite early near Common lock, as most of the day we had locks in our favour. Took advantage of the pleasant evening and the low bank to paint the RH side of the hull below the gunwale. I had already prepared both sides while at Redhill.

7 locks, 13 miles.
