Not quite so bright and sunny today, but still pleasant later on after the early morning mist cleared.

We stopped as Ashwood basin to see if we could get some coal, but no luck.

We did manage to get some more fuel by scavanging fallen wood from the wooded areas beside several of the locks. When we arrived at Kinver visitor moorings I broke it into manageable sized pieces using a lump hammer and my feet. I really will have to buy an axe!

We stopped at the DIY pumpout machine by the permanent mooring in Kinver. Unfortunately the holding tank outlet was on the canal, not towpath, side. So I had to balance precariously on the gunnell with the pipe going across the top of the boat – not easy !

It started raining in late afternoon and then rained very heavily all night.
