One son now at Uni and the other one in London for the weekend gave us free reign to head off to pastures new. We have passed Fazely junction many times when on the Coventry canal knowing it is the link to all things industrial heritage in Birmingham. We do not have the time or planning to venture into Birmingham on this trip so we winded at the bottom of the Curdworth flight.
We took the decision to cruise to the winding hole (well hidden until you are on it) to note down possible mooring for the night and today as we were not intending moving. We spotted a perfect mooring by the aqueduct next to Fishers mill bridge. We noted just one boat following us and there were no other boats moored at all...... yep they also spotted the best mooring and when we arrived back they were smack in the middle of the armco. We could have dropped in but with no other boats at all about we dropped just the other side of the bridge onto pins....
Rachel working hard..... I did set the fire, yes first this season, plus made us a nice curry.
Its very quite - both towpath and canal - nice. Only problem is the fishing is pants , two hours last night and not a nibble.
Blooming gates...stay shut!
