We are off!
Approaching our first solo lock aboard nb Tentatrice - Hanbury bottom lock and luck was on our side - a boat was just coming out, so the lock was ready for us
In Hanbury bottom lock - sadly no VLK's on duty today.
Very busy at Hanbury Turn
A very hot dog
This part of the Worcester and Birmingham canal is narrow and very reedy.
Dunhamptead Tunnel - first tunnel aboard Tentatrice
We moored at Tibberton near The Bridge Inn - just too sunny for a good picture!
and decided to treat ourselves to a pub lunch which was very good - the baguettes are excellent and can be recommended if you happen to pass this way. Also they welcome dogs in the bar and Monty was very grateful for a lovely cold floor.
Will I ever get used to life afloat? Of course he will, but he is a typical Border Collie and takes his time getting used to new experiences. He did enjoy a lieusurely walk along to the locks at Offerton as the sun started to go down.
