Leisurely Day in Alrewas

How lucky we are to be able to have these stopover days when we want.  Either because the weather is awful or as now when we are in a lovely place.  We see all these hire boats with people who have paid a fortune for 1 week's holiday.  It does make me wonder if I should forgive them when they go rushing past us without slowing down.............however, having said that, sadly it is not the hire boats who are in the majority who choose to ignore moored boats, it is longer term boaters.  Grrrrrh!!!
This has to be one of the best kept villages one can see.  The canal banks are lined with houses with beautiful gardens

Away from the canal it is the same story, everything looks very neat and tidy.  There are sufficient amenities for our needs in the town, pubs if we want one and also buses.
Below the last lock on the way out the canal briefly joins the River Trent...........................coming in under the bridge on the right
....................but soon rushes away again after just a brief time.

Along the banks are these two delightful resting places.
