Yesterday evening we decided to eat at The Queens head, Diana and Brian walked over during the afternoon to book a table, no chance, they were fully booked, but if we turned up as soon after 6 pm as possible we would probably get a table in the bar and they were spot on. The place was heaving but I must say the service was second to none. well done them.
This morning we were ready to leave at 9-30 as Brian had the breakfast out for us when we got up. There wasn’t a breath of wind and the sun was getting brighter, looking out of the rear door this was our view of the pub.
As it had been some time since the last boat went up the flight we set off, it turned out to be well timed because as we left the second lock another boat was ready to start their way up.
We made good progress up the flight meting 4 boats when we were well over half way up, but this didn’t help much as they had passed another boat going up a lock or so ahead. The reservoir looked quite low as we passed.
We continued on to the long pound before Tardebigge Top Lock to moor for the night at 1300 hrs.
