Tuesday 1st March
A much nicer day. The sun tried to shine, and even succeeded a couple of times. Almost everyone we passed commented on the change.
We chugged off after a leisurely breakfast, passing over the River Trent at Brindley Bank and on through Rugeley. We stopped for a short chat with Bruce and Sheila, our erstwhile neighbours in the marina as they had stopped to do some shopping, and then carried on to Fradley Junction.
As expected there was no mooring to be had at the junction, so we turned around and made our way back up the three locks to find a mooring up there. Our intention is to walk back to The Swan, the pub on the junction, and have a meal tonight.
