Wednesday 26th August
We had loads of rain overnight but work to a dry grey morning. We then set off for an un-eventful day, rather too full of tricksy locks. One even had a lively wasps nest in the grass lockside. (Quick – hide all that jam!)
By one-ish the sun had properly come out and it was a pleasant afternoon. It was even later when we spotted the first Kingfisher of the day, and then just like London buses, another flew past almost immediately. Graham got a picture of this Raptor sat in a pear tree – possibly having a doze, who knows.
We decided to stop for the night above Stan Glover lock as we decided it would be nice and quiet. We are amidst the weeping willows and chattering ducks opposite the weir, and at the bottom of someone's garden. We should be about one hours run from Stratford. We plan to get there to find a mooring once others have left tomorrow morning – fingers crossed.
A quiet night in tonight as there is no where to go here.
