Tuesday 31 Aug 2010 Stourton Junction

DSCF4695Well we had no problems at our mooring by Tesco's last night and  the whole mooring looks one of the best town moorings I have seen, a little further up canal side if the Frankie and Benny's restaurant and they even leave all their tables and chairs out over night. There was no sigh on an DSCF4699 beer cans or needles laying about or even rubbish come to that, all very neat and smart, its a shame its not better used as there are rings all the way along. Just before we left a hire boat moored ahead of us for shopping.

We stocked up with heavy items (beer) milk etc. from Tesco's before leaving at about 10.40 am and made our way up the Staffs and Worcester canal, all the locks were with us and we met boats at most of them. We stopped to chat with Graham and Evelyn at Wolverley as Graham was working on the boat as we passed.There was so much traffic coming our way we even met 3 boats in the flight above Kinver and another just above the lock. I think we only closed one top gate all day.

We have moored for the night just passed Stourton Junction, we finished quite early at 3 30 pm. so I was able to tackle some moor of the rust patches on the roof, I only did 24 today with Kurust, I will prime them tomorrow if the weather is better than that indicated by my weather station.
