Thursday 21 February Adderley Locks

Well what a super day its been today, really spring like.
For some reason we were a little late getting away, I am not sure why. I spent the first part of the journey in the galley as the burner in our Dickinson cooker needed cleaning out, bit of a mucky job and of course you have to let it cool down a bit before you can touch it. Its something that doesn't require doing so often now we use low sulphur diesel.
Diana had a boat pull out ahead of her before we reached Audlem Locks which was unfortunate as it put them all against us and we only met one boat coming down. Other than when the boat was coming towards none of the by-washes were flowing but they were all on level.
We stopped at the top lock and bought some cakes from the lock cottage before continuing on to moor for the night at the 48 hr moorings below Adderley Locks.
Since we have been here I have replumbed the suction side of the domestic water pump as the strainer had decided to start to drip quite badly. When I change the pump they supplied a new one that plugged straight into the pump, so that is now in circuit and the old Flojet one removed.
Today's Journey 5¾ miles, 15 locks in 4 hours.
