King’s Bromley Marina Sunday 14 June 2015

We had a very good meal in the Plum Pudding last nigh, as you can see we couldn’t have moored any closer.DSCF9430 As you can see from the path it was dry over night, last night I swept the water away before we walked down the path to eat.

There was quite a bit of traffic about this morning and I was pleased that we were moored on rings the pull we had from some of the boats going by. We pushed off at 1030 am making our way slowly back to our marina. Someone had kindly organised a fly past for us.DSCF9432 I think there was some kind of run along the tow path yesterday as we saw lots of posts with arrows on them which is fine. What is not fine in my opinion is dayglow arrows painted on bridges.DSCF9436 These were also painted on trees and on bridge 60 there was also the instructions to “Turn Off” and more arrows. If you know who is responsible I would love to contact them and ask them to clean it off.

Passing through Handsacre there is a house with a fine collection of sheds in his garden.DSCF9435

Just before we reached King’s Bromley Marina we met Martin again coming the other way.DSCF9437 Within 5 minutes we would be turning into the entrance of the Marina, no one watching so round 90° and in through the entrance in one smooth move.

We were packed up quite quickly and on our way just after 1 pm. Just as we were about to turn onto the A38 we decided that we would go to The Plough at Huddlesford for lunch, we had been there 3 time in the past 7 days so why not once more. The place was packed but there was a table for two in the corner of the bar from where I could see right into the kitchen. The down side of this was I thought they were preparing our meals 3 times before they came to our table.

This trip we have done over 290 miles and 182 lock as we covered some of the bits more than once. canalplan.org.uk/ said this would take 147 hours

So that’s it until the next trip folks.

We were there packing away or had left the marina by then as I didn't see of hear them. I did see one other plane which I couldn't identify about mid day.

If the spray-paint is what i think it is then it should wash of naturally in a few days. It looks like road-marking spray, which is basically a low-tack chalk spray, and will degrade and wash away under normal weather conditions.

Dave, I hope you are right
