We left Droitwich Spa Marina on 23 May 2014 under a very heavy sky
It was not long before the heavens opened and stayed that way for two days whilst we tackled the 45 locks to the top of Tardebigge!
He was not happy!!
Also note the 'winter hat' and many layers worn last May
This trip was a complete contrast - a wonderful blue sky and plenty of sunshine
He was wearing his coat to protect his back where he had a lump removed just under two weeks ago. I am glad to say the lump was benign and the scar is healing well.
Finally the stats for those who like these things (that would be me then!) of our summer cruise:
We travelled 641.25 miles, went through 406 locks, 14 tunnels and 9 swing bridges, over 19 aqueducts and cruised for around 310 hours.
