Penkridge to Wheaton Aston

Sunday 13th March
Firstly I have to say a happy Birthday to Lee (Kevs son) hope you had a good day!
We left Penkridge this morning and it was a nice bright sunny morning although it was still breezy & cool in the shade. When we got to Gailey we realised that the last time that we were there we were moored ahead of Rock & Roll with George & Carol & we were on 4EverMoore and we were iced in!
What a difference today

Gailey Round House

We passed the Fox & Anchor & we call this bend "Busters Bend" as this is where we once came round in the opposite direction and we decided to pull across & moor & Kev jumped off the boat followed by Buster! Unfortunately Buster didn't make it onto the towpath with Kev & ended up in the canal! He is not a water baby & was heading towards the opposite side of the canal so Kev had to jump in after him and pull him out as he wasn't doing well and I can only say he swims like a brick!!

I was allowed to take R&R through the narrow cutting & never met any boats coming the other way Phew!!

This Heron had a good catch!
