Re-mustering of the crew….

It looks like it’ll be a while before the river at Alrewas is back to normal, it rose another 6” on Sunday night.

The Trent is in there somewhere…pano

Being as we’ll be here for a few days, I decided to return to Fradley. There’s good parking for the hire car there, and access to all sanitary facilities. Thanks, Ray, for the offer of a lift for me and my poo tanks, but I couldn’t put on you again.

I dropped down Bagnall Lock yesterday, winded and came back up again to moor in the same spot but facing the other way. Then this morning I returned up the three locks to the Fradley moorings.

Yesterday was bright and sunny, but turned to rain later. Today has been gloomy, with leaden skies. The rain held off till lunchtime, and we’ve had intermittent showers since.
I toddled off to collect an Enterprise car from Lichfield this afternoon, doing a bit of shopping on the way back. Meg seems to sense something is in the wind, she’s not left my side since I returned. I wonder how she’ll react when she sees Mags tomorrow…

Locks 5, miles 1¾
