May 6th 2012 Who said it was quiet

Yesterday I blogged how quiet it was with not many boats on the move. Well today made up for that. Boats round every corner and queues at some of the locks with all the usual banter. It was a nice sunny day as we left Stone and set of on what would be a long day as our destination was Fradley Junction. At the first lock of the day the mile marker indicted that we were at the half way point of the Trent and Mersey canal. At Haywood Junction we passed the book boat plying its trade and there were plenty of people around so hopefully sales were good. We have moored between woods end lock and the Fradley top lock tonight. Tomorrow should see us back in Mercia Marina and we plan to travel back to Suffolk on Tuesday.

Today  23 miles     8 locks
