Hi All
And thank you all for reading our blog and saying hello along the cut even if it just a quick wave and a shout hello

At the moment we are heading for Langley mill up the Erewash canal were we will leave the boat in peters good hands while we go to the wrg Easter camp on the Chesterfield canal

So what we been up to since last blog
Well I fitted some new batteries I got from Norbury wharf and then we heading down the shroppie we were going to go down into Birmingham but as we did not leave Ellesmere early we do not have enough  time, hope to be back around there end of summer
Our son Chris came to see us and bring our post he is doing well we met him at Cross Green
We heading off along the Staffs & Worcs this is quite a nice canal and go thorough some lovely countryside and with this lovely weather we are having right now you can see spring happening in front of your eyes
We stopped one night at a place called Tixall wide and there is a lovely gate house on the hill here
and then we watched the sun set through the trees

Next we headed down the Trent and Mersey canal,
Just after Rugeley there is a house that keep bird of pray and this time one of them was out

not sure what it is

 Tina auntie and uncle have also got a boat and we had not seen them yet so we got hold of them and found out there were going back to the boat builder of the Birmingham and Fazeley canal and as we had a couple of day spare we went to find them
