It was a fairly nice morning as we set off a little after 8am but the forecast said rain later (what a surprise).There boats already on the move and we went into Fradley top lock as one came out a good start. the next two locks would be the same what a good start alas there was nothing coming up the last two locks. In all it was quite a quick passage through the Fradley Locks, and soon we were gently going passed the line of permanent moorings one of which is held by another bloggers boat NB Waterlily there is a link to his site on the left of our home page. Just passed Waterlily another familiar boat came into view it was Living in Sanity Again with Sheila at the helm and Bruce walking between the locks a quick shouted greeting and all to soon we were passed(there is also a link to there blog site as well). It was a steady day with company at most of the locks.The rain did make an appearance after lunch but wasn’t heavy. We eventually arrived back in Mercia Marina around 4pm and set about tidying the boat and stowing stuff away as we plan to return to Suffolk for about a month in which time Shell Bell will be painted but more about that later.
