Just an overnight trip with the grandchildren Josh & Becca to make up for the weekend in January when we couldn’t go anywhere because of the frozen canal.

We arrived about 10:30 and plodded slowly up to the Lea Lane winding hole, turned and came back to Wolverley to moor just above the lock.

The afternoon was spent going for a walk, playing games with the children and indulging in clotted cream ice-creams from the lockside tea rooms. Then we moved the half mile or so to just below Wolverly Court lock and moored up for the night. The weather improved and we spent a lovely evening just chilling out.

On Sunday morning we headed back to Kidderminster, on approching bridge 17 we could see another boat stopped mid-stream. They were stuck on a shopping trolley. It took three of us pulling on the bow rope, one on the stern rope and a lot of pushing on poles to get them free. When we came through I approched it fairly fast then knocked the engine into neutral and glided over the obstacle.

WE packed up and headed home for a family barbecue.
