At 58 feet length, TQ (as we call her) is a steel hull narrow boat built by Colecraft and fitted out by Elton Moss Boatbuilders. Currently based at Aqueduct Marina in Cheshire we're able to cruise some of the most popular waterways in Britain. The Shropshire Union, The Trent and Mersey, The Llangollen Canal, The Four Counties Ring and Cheshire Ring and more.

Our friendly Syndicate decided to go down the Self Management route on 1st March 2012 and so far it has been very successful. Please visit the other pages in this blog to see the new Web Site and if shares are available for sale. (There'll not be many).

I am having to place a watermark on the blog content as someone on Facebook is stealing photos and claiming them as their own. I wouldn't mind if they asked first and attributed it to my blog. If it continues I will name and shame them. I hope it doesn't spoil your enjoyment.

A double dose and the weather's turned out nice again.

Two blogs worth tonight, last night we moored in the sticks and there was no interwebby and although we're in the sticks again tonight there is some if I go outside.
From Stourport we managed to get as far as Dunsley Hall just short of Dunsley Tunnel. Found a quiet little spot where you can listen to nature in all her glory.
In between we passed through some really picturesque villages and countryside and even Kidderminster is good.
Debdale Lock is a bit unusual in that it has a hole cut in the rock and inside there is an empty room hewn out of the sandstone.
Speeding on (metaphorically speaking), we cruise through Cookley and Kinver, both pleasantly rural before reaching our destination.
The following morning greats us with a lovely dawn chorus, but during the night we were woken by an owl screeching loudly very close to the boat - spooky. We could hear some splashing going on and in the bushes close to the waterline the occasional tail and find would break the surface.

It's a lovely morning.
Now why Dunsley Tunnel is called a tunnel I'm not sure as it's only 25 yards long, I've been under wider bridges.
I've taken quite a few photos today and as a picture paints a thousand words, I'll let them tell the story.

We're falling further and further behind schedule and it looks like the Four Counties Ring is off, so we have a choice of two there and back journeys, either up the Trent and Mersey Canal or the Shropshire Union. I think I know which we'll choose.
Wait and see tomorrow.
