Arrived about 5:00, quickly unpacked, up through Kidderminster lock then stopped at Sainsburys to stock up for the trip.
Moored for the night just before Wolverly Court lock. Speaking to daughter Liz on the phone she said that they have just had a terrific thunderstorm. About an hour later we are stood at the back of the boat in the dark and can hear thunder a few miles away probably the storm following up the river valley. We see the occasional flash of lightening. Then we hear a strange whooshing noise apparently approching us along the canal. We suddenly realise what it is, it’s rain – great big spots!. It must have been the edge of the thunderstorm and has passed by 10 minutes later.
