Droitwich marina

The weather forecast is for rain so an early start was called for. By 7:30 both boats were in the first of the two wide locks taking us up to the canal.

All went well for an hour or so, the locks were all in our favour, though of course the second boat had to turn them. The as we were ascending the Offerton flight it started to rain very heavily. We got soaked!

After a short conflab at the top of the flight we decided to carry on as we were already wet. For the next hour or so we plodded on under umbrellas. As we reached Hanbury junction the rain stopped and the sun came out. So in the last bit down to the marina we almost dried out!
