July 2nd 2012 On the Coventry

A slow start this morning saw us pulling the pins and leaving Shobnall just after 10:00am. First stop was at Shobnall Marina for diesel, this has just re-opened after the previous people closed down. Must say the staff were excellent, very helpful and efficient and they let you self declare. With the tank topped up we made for Fradley Junction. We had only been going for about an hour and the rain came and basically stayed around all day. We stopped for lunch in Alrewas then it was back on the move to Fradley Junction. The canal was reasonably quiet with only the odd boat on the move. Once through the third lock at Fradley we turned left and headed off along the Coventry canal. We have moored at Whittington and the rain has stopped but for how long I wonder?

Today  13 miles       10 locks
