We have broken out from the High Offley - Norbury Junction circuit. This morning we set off for Goldstone Wharf but halfway there we decided that, as it was a beautiful day, we would push on to Market Drayton, Jill has a strong dislike of Woodseaves Cutting and wanted to get it behind us.
Tyrley Locks were in benevolent mood, the flow down the by-washes had lessened and with virtually no wind they were a doddle.
It was mostly a glorious trip, the kind of day that makes you realise why we live this lifestyle.
The local birds are all getting busy with nesting, today we saw buzzards, yellowhammers, skylarks, bull finches and lapwings as well as the usual collection of nondescript little brown jobs.
Now at Market Drayton for a day or two.
