It’s all go and back to plan “B”

After Dot took a stroll up to lock 13 to see how BW were progressing she has returned with a report that the work has now been completed and the lock had been refilled. The work on lock 19 has already been completed so we can access the North Stratford Canal through lock 20. Yippee!

After consultation with our cruising partners, Derek and Carrie, it‘s been agreed that we will head off tomorrow morning so that we can reach Cadbury’s World by Monday. This will enable them to take their Grandson to get his fill of chocolate. Of course the adult’s will also want their share.

This afternoon another down under couple have moored up behind us. Brian (kiwi from Christchurch) and Wendy from Australia on Nb Roman.  They arrived in November and bought their boat in December.  After chatting for a while with Dot they have decided to follow us up Lapworth Flight tomorrow towards Birmingham instead of heading up the Grand Union Canal and the Knowle Locks.

And while you are there Derek, you will be able to buy Dot some chocolate for Valentines's Day, won't you.
