Onto the Stratford & Avon Canal

Wednesday 8th July
We stayed put yesterday as we had to take Jaz to the vets at 2.45pm, we left her in her cage while we had a walk to Pets at Home to get her a nylon chew and a toy to help keep her occupied. Mind you she is being very good and is adapting to her new home and us very well.  When we returned there were plenty more tourists about Stratford is very popular, we have been here before but it was when we had a caravan.
Our view from the stern
I am not sure who is at the top of the column but the one's around it are characters from various Shakespeare plays, so it could be William Shakespeare himself as I didnt go and read what it said.
Before we went to the vets Kev took the camera and took a few photos while I relaxed on the bow.

We left the basin this morning and after working through 4 locks we moored opposite Valley Wharf hire boats. We will stay here now as Kev has had to hire a car to go home for some claim forms that the car insurance company have sent to our cottage which is a bit of a bind as we wish they had told us this before we left the Staffs & Worcester canal and we could have got them then. Kev had asked if we could do them online but we would have needed our printer, if we don't get the forms sent off it will hold the claim up until we are back home in August. Our car will be ready for when we return to the marina so it hasn't held the work up, we will be going home for a family wedding.
