Things to do and plans to make

Gailey Lock
There is just a promise that by the weekend it may get warmer if the wind changes. We have decided to do some washing and dry the clothes by the fire. “Anybody short of water can lick it off our windows!” By the end of the day it was all dry. Perhaps later we can back up that lock again for water and diesel. Done the Christmas cards and posted some when Ann and Carol took the bus to Stafford. More to go next time we get out.

Meanwhile the canal remains frozen and the British Waterways men doing this dredging told us there is no chance of moving any time soon. So we stay put and make other plans to go home. The marina we were going is frozen with 4 inches of ice. A taxi can take us to Stafford for the train while George and Carol kindly look after the boat.

Hi Chas and Ann,
the last picture in this series of the giant block of ice looks like a giant slice of coconut bar with shreds on top! Lovely!

Hi Chas/Ann
No condensation to lick on my windows.

Enjoying a mild weekend so ice and condensation gone for now. Some boaters with itchy feet may try and move but ice still thick in places.
