Even had no fear of heights
Beautiful heron not worried at all!
Barry scratching his head
British Waterways boat Scorpio and butty Leo who passed us at the lock. They are heading to Stourport for a boating festival this weekend
Taking on a little unwanted canal water at the lock
They were built in the 1930's and now used for BW promotions
Today we think we passed by the narrowboat we had a deposit on last year, Val De Frejus - a little more upmarket than the one we now have as that one cost almost 3 times as much and was only 2 years old rather than 20! But we do love our little Northern Pride. We also passed by 'Plan B' the narrowboat that was on the photo we used for our NZ leaving party - I took that photo in Stourport last year.
A lovely lock at Wombourne
Jamie’s Australian friend Taryn (she's actually very nice so we will forgive her for being an Ozzie I think!) has now joined us, so we have 4 people on out tiny boat until the weekend.
Jamie's done a few locks today, but is yet to experience driving the boat, maybe tomorrow…
