Well not much to report lately its just been a bit of cruising and relaxing. Came down through Tamworth and at Polesworth Andy/Bev came with the kids who have just got over chicken pox and both delighted in showing me the spots that were almost gone.
We all cruised for an hour then winded and cruised back past Polesworth to Alvechurch Marina and had a meal in the newish pub the name of which escapes me. The nice thing is the pub/restaurant is on the 1st floor and from the balcony you get a view over the canal and the marina and the kids are safe away from the water.
So down the 11 locks at Atherstone and a chance to visit the charity shops looking for books. So much time to read that i keep having to grab what i can when we get near towns. At the moment i`ve a thing about Lynda La Plante as an authoress.
Have now gone up the Ashby canal as i did last year and was hoping to go to the Hinkley greyhound track but chatting to locals over a pint discovered it shut just a few weeks ago.
The weather has bucked up lately so i am just sitting in the evening sun having a read or a pint but most of all enjoying life.
Untill next time bye for now.
