Heavy rain yesterday and overnight but fine this morning, we were away about 10am. the first stop being Tesco at Brownhills. While Diana was in the shop I was down the weed hatch where I removed what I think was a black dog poo bag along with the other general rubbish.
Once Diana was back it was only a few hundred meters to Catshill Junction where we left the Wyrley & Essington canal and went onto the Daw End Branch, both the canal well covered in a green plant growth.
It wasn't long before it started drizzling which then turned into a full downpour, no time to get a coat on, so just the umbrella to keep me dry and it does work well. The journey to the Longwood Boat Club ended in better weather.
