Not a bad day again today, none of the rain that was forecast. The sun has been almost shining and although the canal was very busy with some waiting at locks we got to Tixall Wide by 2:00. We passed Granny Buttons at br 98, I twittered Andrew, but no reply.
Lots of boats at the wide, but we found a good spot to moor and enjoyed a late lunch in the sunshine.
We then set off for a long walk around the Shugbrough estate, down the S&W to br 106, across the river and railway then follow around the boundary of the estate through the woods. This leads to the T&M across Essex br then back along the towpath.
Spent the evening with a glass of wine watching the birds & bats – what a life!
