The River Trent sparking in the sunshine
Monday 1st May
Another glorious day with an almost cloudless sky. The only downside was once again the wind.
After spending a fine lazy day in Rugeley we decided to move along to the Staffs & Worcs canal and moor up on the beautiful Tixall Wide for the night.
It's bank holiday Monday and the canal is full of boats meaning there is a queue for the locks but the upside of this is you get a chance to chat with people and of course there are more hands to operate the lock.
As I mentioned before the small amount of rain the other night left the boat covered in dust so when we found the water point at Great Haywood wasn't being used we decided to stop and give the boat a bit of a wash. We can at least now see that it's meant to be blue.
After that we moved down to The Wide and moored for the night.
