Spring Summer Cruse 2015 ❶❸

Fradeley  to Rugely
Date18 May 2015

Overnight the weather was in the main raining

Morning: The weather was such that we decided to just sit it out. The only boats on the move were hire boats with their crews on a mission.

Afternoon: Just after lunch the weather improved and we filled up with water. Then set off to do the Fradley flight. Each lock had a boat coming downhill. So we were soon up the flight and on our way to Rugely. Running the washing machine and we had two loads done in no time at all. A few boats seen coming the other way. The towpath was almost devoid of anyone using it.

Evening: Settled down for an evening of television.
