While moored up in the basin at Stratford upon Avon I had a visit from Andy/Bev and the grandchildren Jack&Jordan.
A visit to the Butterfly farm, which can be viewed on the picture album video below was followed by a ride on the chain ferry pictured below.

As you can imagine this was a lovely w`end and after the family had gone home the plan was to go down onto the R. Avon and make our way to Gloucester.
Setting off in fine weather i was realy enjoying myself and arrived at Bidford just after Andy/Tina on `Ytene` then John on `Tui` approached the arched bridge and the brainless idiot decided to ignore the arrows indicating which arch was the navigable channel instead he thought the centre arch looked ok but he didn`t make it and become well and truly stuck in the shallow water.
The outcome of all this will be revealed on the next blog by which time i hope to have my boat back in service.
