A very short day today – only 7 miles & nine locks.
We did a few jobs around the boat. I treated the roof with a Jeyes Fluid solution to remove some of the algae that had developed during the winter. The problem was that I tried to rinse it off with the mop, the rough non-slip surface on the roof tended to shred the mop so I ended up with a slightly fluffy roof!
We stopped in Alrewas to visit the excellent butcher and pick up a few things from the Co-op. Then on to Fradley where we had a pumpout and topped up with diesel. A slowish chug up to Armitage where we moored up at about 5 o’clock.
We had our meal in the Plum Pudding, but it was a bit disappointing. There was only one other table occupied so the atmosphere was lacking, the menu wasn’t as interesting as on a previous visit and some items were ‘off’. I think it must have changed hands.
