What a week that has been, apart from the weather which we have all shared, T-mobile's internet signal seemed to have disappeared, even from places where there is normally a good signal. Could it be the weather,does the rain wash all those little digits away? Or perhaps the wind whisks them off? Who knows.
We set off from Penkridge on Wednesday heading west. At Rodbaston Lock we came across this intriguing bit of B.W. engineering.
We stopped at Long Moll's Bridge (Still haven't found out who Long Moll was.) and stayed there on Thursday just watching the horizontal rain. We had to put the central heating on it was that cold, in June, unheard of.
Our eldest had expressed a desire to spend a day with us on Saturday so on Friday we moved on to Cross Green. Wind, rain, normally we would have sat it out but we needed to be a bit nearer civilization. Had a great day on Saturday with Cairstine, Noah and Jonah, she treated us to lunch in The Fox and Anchor, can't be bad.
We set off early this morning and as we came through the rocking towards Cut End we had a thought.
Mmm, we thought, Brewood (Pronounced Brood) isn't far down the Shroppie and at Brewood is located The Curry Inn, best curry house on the cut.
So as we arrived at the junction
We stopped at our favourite moorings on this stretch, between bridges 7&8 and Jill cooked up a splendid breakfast. The temptation was too great and here we have stayed.
