April 9th 2012 Onto The Shropshire Union Canal

The weather forecast today was for rain and by jingo they got it right.  It was raining when we set off this morning around 09:15 and it didn’t stop all day. We used the supermarket app on the Iphone to find a Morrison’s and moored up near wolverhampton.  Sheila went off to collect some shopping whilst I dried off in the boat.  It was only about half a mile to the supermarket so it didn’t take Sheila long and we were soon on our way again. At Autherley junction we turned onto the shropshire union canal- another canal we have not been on. Once through the stop lock we pulled onto the water point to top up the tank. Then it was off once more on what looks like a lovely canal. We decided to moor around 14:30 between bridge 7 and 8 just south of Brewood.

Today  10 miles      1 lock
