How good it was to spend the weekend with friends but now we continue north to get past the stoppages. They are not due yet but Ann is to go home to look after the grand children and when she gets back, work on the Shropshire Union will have started.
That is the other reason for our haste. We are keeping up to our schedule but having to pass many of our favourite moorings. We did manage to stop at Norbury Wharf and got an 'all day' breakfast.
