However I was just a tad braver this time as I went forward to take a couple of pictures. We only passed two boats all day in the other direction and both of those were in Wast Hill tunnel. It is wide enough for 2 boats.....just.....
|Boat approaching, very difficult to judge how far away|
Tardebigge tunnel was next and then mooring up for the night whilst we gather strength to tackle 30 locks tomorrow. Lovely views up here.
|Even blue sky|
Average speed:2.32 mph (2.59 lock/mph)
The map shows nicely where we are with the M5 and M42 showing. Sometimes friends with whom I am speaking on the phone ask me where we are. Some of the places I name which seem so familiar to us mean absolutely nothing to them. At least today I could say we are south of the M42 and not far from Bromsgrove!!
