Whittington Brook

 

Well I won't be repeating last nights visit in a hurry when I want somewhere to eat. A large TV on every wall in every room with boxing on, the first 3 choices from the menu were off, one beer was "back soon". We booked a table but they obviously had not reserved one and had to look round to find us one when we arrived, luckily no one else likes sitting up the corner. They did warn us it was a ¾ hour wait for food once we were sat down, but by then what can you do. I am sure they knew they were having two very large parties in when they took the booking for 7-30pm.

We set off this morning a little after 10am heading back to Alvecote marina and arrived there 45 minutes later. The reason for out return is we are picking up Diana's sister and husband who will be with us for a few day. 
When Diana's sister arrived we decided to have lunch before setting off, then it was out of the Marina and turn left, arriving at Glascote to be third in a queue of 4 and only one boat coming up, but it gave the opportunity to give a bit operation tuition. We carried on through Fazeley junction towards Fradley. There were loads of boat moored at Hopwas before the Tame Otter but very few after. We pushed on to moor for the night at Whittington Brook.
