We had a cold, frosty night, but today is sunny and dry. A typical late autumn, early winter day. Beautiful.
We had a very slow cruise down to Shadehouse Lock, with just Woodend Lock to pass. It’s enjoyable running at just over tick-over, listening to the birds and watching the squirrels.
We arrived here a bit before 1 o’clock. We’ll stay here for the weekend now. It’s a pleasant spot, a wide towpath and good walks for Meg, good TV reception, and about ½ an hours walk to Fradley village for a paper.
