Towards Birmingham

One of Geoffrey's favourite pastimes.....yakking at a lock!
Looking back at one of the distinctive Stratford canal bridges
How many more of these locks?????
Whew...thirteen locks done and time for me to sit up front with my coffee and paper and watch the world go by.

A slight delay as we had forgotten there were two lifting bridges,,,,,,,,,,,
Peace at last
By now the showers were beginning to appear but at least it was warm rain..........
By noon we decided to call it a day and found a convenient spot to moor...... after all Wimbledon was on!

Nothing wrong with our chosen spot...it is in fact a designated 48hr mooring spot
 but you wouldn't think so from the length of the grass
Geoff has muttered something about an early start tomorrow.........although he hasn't defined 'Early'

Total distance:4.41 miles 
Elapsed time:3h16m28s
Average speed:1.35 mph (5.32 lock/mph)
