And into Gt Haywood marina

Saturday 15th March

It was foggy first thing yesterday a couple of boats came past with their headlamps on, by the time we were ready to leave our mooring about 9.30am it was clearing.
Only a short journey this morning to Great Haywood Marina, we are leaving Rock & Roll there for a few weeks while Kev is offshore.
Haywood Lock is our last lock this trip

Anglo Welsh hire boats through the bridge at the Staffs & Worcester canal
And finally entering Great Haywood Marina

Once we were in the marina we were given a temporary berth while they sorted a berth for us so I took Buster for a walk & Kev emptied the loo & got rid of rubbish (all good fun eh!) Our car was still at Droitwich Marina & Kev's BMW motorbike is here in the carpark, and so we both went on the bike to Droitwich so Kev let George know we were going so we could pop & see them. 
When we arrived there Carol had kindly made some sandwiches and a cuppa so we sat in their caravan chatting for a while, it was nice to see Molly back to her old self too.
Anyway after a while we said our goodbyes to George & Carol and I set off in car & Kev on bike back to Great Haywood and Kev went back to see Steve in the office to see where he wanted us to move the boat to, we got a berth sorted and got tied up on the pontoon moorings.
About 7pm we had a walk down to the towpath at Anglo Welsh to see if we could spot Sue on No Problem as we were going to say hello but no sign of them! So we had to go to the Clifford arms instead! Hope to catch you another time Sue!


  1. Pleased you have made it to Gt Haywood and getting settled in. I'm onboard an old Semi offshore Malta now.
    We had an extra day on the beach as the crew boat was jumping around and difficult for crane transfers.
    Back ashore next Wednesday and home on Thursday. Not long before I'll be moving off the Soar and heading
    over to near Shardlow. Can't wait to get cruising along the canals and enjoying those single locks Kev has
    been talking about. Have a safe trip home and go steady at Nigg bay. See you both soon when the gaffer returns.

  2. Yes we are on a mission so it was no stopping today at the junction. We will be back that way later so maybe you might be around!

    Sorry to have missed you both..
