Unbelievably, we left Market Drayton at 06:30 this morning, just as it started to rain.
Made our way slowly through Betton Wood, but there was no sign of the Shrieking Spectre that is alleged haunt these parts.
Adderley locks, five in all, a piece of cake as they're well maintained but the rain, heavy at times, made the going soggy.
Then there's the Audlem fifteen, some being tricky with their fast by-washes, especially if you're coming up the flight. We stopped briefly to take on fresh water outside the Fly, then finished off the final three before proceeding on to Coole Pilate.
The rain has stopped now!
Lucy had fish for breakfast...
