August 14th 2012 Glorious sunshine

What a glorious morning we woke to. It was sunny and warm. Leaving Handsacre this morning we followed another boat through the narrows and had a steady cruise to Rugley were we moored neat bridge 65 and headed for Morrisons to top up the food supplys. Leaving Rugley after lunch we set off for great Haywood junction where we would turn onto the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal. It was a pleasant trip with two locks (Colwich and Great Haywood). Having made the turn at the junction we carried on for maybe half a mile and moored at Tixall Wide; we only just managed to squeeze in. It’s very busy here with the moorings full.
