Plenty of locks but sunshine too

Wednesday 10th May
Well what a lovely morning it was when we got up today, although first thing it was quite cool.
Moored below the bottom of Adderley Locks
We had company across from our mooring
As we were getting ready to leave this morning I got Jaz off the boat and Kev let go of the ropes and I walked along the towpath with her while Kev stayed on board following behind. 
When we arrived at the top of the flight of Audlem locks, 2 CRT men came to the lock and one of them was stencilling the word Cill on the lock while the other man was oiling the paddles etc. We put Jaz on board and swapped places so Kev worked the locks while I stayed aboard. There were 2 boats ahead of us going down but it wasn't too bad a one of the CRT men was helping with the gates as they followed us down about 5 locks!

Waiting for Kev to set the lock near the Shroppie Fly pub
Looking back at the Shroppie Fly
Passing Overwater Marina
This is were we have pulled over to moor at Cool Pilates
Washing on and kebabs made for our first BBQ this year, while the weather is good!
