We moved

Getting through this winter has been a drag. Meeting up with Sue & Vic on No Problem has pulled us through with their company. We have all got to Penkridge with Vic lifting a paddle in front to help us through a few locks. For two days we endured the cold and pushed through some slushy ice.

Away from the Shropshire Union and that muddy towpath at Gnosall. Now we twist and turn on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. At one turn the boat refused to go round due to the mudbanks under water. At least the towpaths are less muddy now!

Two or three hours is quite enough during mid morning, travelling while well wrapped up and drinking hot tea or soup on the way. Once moored we enjoy the company either on No Problem or Moore 2 Life back inside a warm boat.

Every mile is two in winter, but it does make for some stunning photography.

Hi Bella, I tried to leave a comment on your Blog but Google got in the way!

The old boaters had slots on their plates for different coloured ribbon to indicate their status. Going out, Engaged or Married.
