August 16th 2012 Onto the Shroppie

Although windy it was nice and bright when we set off this morning. We were soon through the three locks leading into Gailey. The weather remained good and we made good progress. We had to wait for NB Nomad at the entrance to the narrows and then had to wait half way through for another boat to pass. Once through the narrows it was a short trip to Autherley Junction where we turned onto the Shropshire Union canal, The shroppie is a lovely canal and we have moored just outside Brewood. This evening the weather has turned a bit. It is very windy and there has been the occassional shower.
