Wednesday 23rd
3.5 miles and 7 locks.
Had a lazy morning. Didn't leave Minworth till about 11.30. The weather has been perfect for cruising (sorry Elissa), sunny, warm with a light breeze. Very little traffic around waterwise. It's now 3.30 and only 2 boats have passed us all day. This stretch of the Birmingham and Fazeley canal is absolutely beautiful. Much of the early spring blossom is just really coming out now. We are surrounded by fields and many of those are yellow with the rape seed in flower. Most of the morning  we have been showered with seeds blowing off the trees, reminding me of confetti. 

Now sitting in the cratch of the boat where it is nice and cool and shady, just enjoying being. Bryan just had a little spurt of energy and mopped down the outside of the boat but now has his feet up, reading. We should also be able to get a good satellite signal here so we can watch Lewis tonight. Yeah.
PS haven't lit the fire for the last 3 days.
