After breakfast we set off for Worcester. With four of us we could work one lock ahead on the Offerton flight. Brian soon got the hang of what to do with the paddles, gates etc.

The weather had improved a bit and it was a pleasant run down to Worcester. After winding in Diglis basin we came back a few yards to moor up near Mill st bridge.

After lunch we all went for a wander round the town. We had wanted to take the riverside walk along by the Cathedral. But the Severn was so high that the path was under water.

Our evening meal was taken in the “The Talbot” restaraunt . It was quiet to start with, but filled up later as they were showing a football match.

Back to the boat for wine, cheese & biscuits and a game of Rumikub!
