We arrived at Polesworth visitor moorings about 11.30am to find NB Roosters Rest moored there all on its own so we moored just passed them, Terry had come out to help us. It was lovely to see Pam & Terry again they are a really lovely couple and good for a laugh too!
Jaz on the lookout for Pam & Terry!
Both boats like bookends!
Once we were moored securely Pam made us a cuppa, she had a hair appointment for 1pm so I had a walk with her into Polesworth village leaving Kev & Terry back at the boats. While Pam was having her hair done I had a walk around as I have never been into Polesworth village before although we have passed through it several times this is the first time we have actually managed to get moored here. It is quite a surprising village with a good mixture of properties.
A lovely thatched cottage
This house above is opposite the Coop & just passed it is the church entrance & Old Abbey
This is the old gate to the Abbey
This is information about the Abbey
After a walk about I went to the hairdressers to meet up with Pam, as I got there the hairdresser was finishing Pam's hair & so I sat for a few minutes before we both left and headed back to the men back on board R&R having a couple of beers!(Surprised! No not a bit) So both Pam & myself joined them!
Later on after having a good natter and a few more beers Kev & Terry went to one of the Chinese takeaways & brought the food back to R&R and very enjoyable it was too. A lovely time with Terry & Pam as always.
This morning we were all preparing to go our separate ways, Roosters Rest was heading to Fazeley while we were heading off towards Atherstone.
Big smiles as usual, bye for now.
We got to the the bottom lock at Atherstone and after we had gone up the first two locks we moored and had a bite to eat and take Jaz for a walk before setting off again and we went up the next 4 locks and are now moored between lock 6 & 5 & will stay here for the night.
