Deepest Warwickshire

A fairly early start this morning at 8am, the sun was out but gosh it was chilly.

Poppy hovering in the background while the work boat is moved, 
camera at the ready if this chap fell in ! But he didn't.

This lot soon had us up warmed up...

Kingswood Junction
Mark taking some of our rubbish to the bins, 
spot the boat on the lock landing between the  2 locks
  Not the best place to moor up...

A barrel roofed lock cottage, common to The Stratford Canal. 

We turned left onto the Grand Union at the junction as we are killing time till Friday when the winter stoppages should be completed & we can head off to Stratford on Avon.

  Mooring up by bridge 68 at 1pm we were more than ready for our lunch, doing those 19 locks worked  up an appetite. But it was a real pleasure cruising today despite some stiff paddles on the locks & the lift bridge (28) nearly had me beat!

 A Tesco delivery is ordered for tomorrow as there are not many shops handy for the canal. It's also time for a wash day & if this weather holds I might even be able to hang some outside.......
