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.

From between Bridges 21 and 22 to Compton Lock.

Another late start, and we have things to do. First we need to stop in Wheaton Aston for more fuel, well it's obligatory at their prices. Once we had fuelled, Lin went shopping in the local to top up our supplies, and I did some polishing. Then we filled the water tank before going through the lock.
We spotted a Vauxhall Omega 3.2 V6 estate down over the bank, it had a private number plate beginning with V6 xxx. It was really tatty, the tailgate was dented and the bird sh!t on the roof was an inch thick where it had been parked under the trees for ever and a day. What a shame.
Onward, and we stopped in Brewood (Brood) for lunch. A lovely spot on the visitor moorings and so quiet too.

Big boys toys.

Little boys toys.
Just before we went through the Stop Lock we had a pump-out at Napton Narrowboats; now there's a cost that's increasing at a rate of knots. £20, but I didn't mind too much as the outlet was on the off side.
We're back on the Staffs and Worcs now on the visitor moorings. So we're pumped out, fully watered and dieseled up = a clear mind.

Lucy? Fed and watered, and she's still mythering.

Meow me, now!
We might have to give her a tin of "shut up" later if she keeps on.
