A few days later Ann was back on board. Our friends Terry n Myra had hired a car and bought Ann with them to stay on board for a while. It was quite late in the day when they arrived after such a long journey. Once all the kit was thrown on board we all went off to the Clifford Arms for a welcome drink and meal that evening.
Next day we set off early heading down the locks to Rugeley where we all went to stock up with food for our journey. Winter almost arrived again as we progressed south so we stopped at Handsacre.
