We were having a late breakfast, as again it was raining hard. Still moored opposite the Crown Inn, and there was Waterway Routes cruising back down towards us, so Paul came alongside and we had a lovely chat with him and family. They have a permanent mooring in the Birmingham area, so naturally knows where the no go areas are and said not to hesitate to email him if we needed some advice. We checked his website and found that he had posted several pictures of Skyy on his blog. Paul did note that my most recent blog had been posted at 4am, I don’t know how that could of have happened, I can assure all interested parties, that both I and Jacquie were well tucked in at that time. Thanks for your interest Paul.
We moved into the Hop House area, to await the arrival of Phil, Lynne and Stanley the puppie and on route, Jacquie got too loads through the washing machine, the sun was now shining and both loads were dry by 7pm., courtesy of the whirligig dryer, set up on the stern deck. We filled with water, turned at the winding hole and moored up a few boat lengths up from the tap so that we can fill up again on Wednesday morning. What planning!!!!
