We are out cruising again. You can look at our day by day plan that takes us to Droitwich and back to Mercia Marina.

We are moored below Swindon Lock. That's Swindon in Staffordshire not Wiltshire! Should the Wilts. & Berks. Canal ever get restored then a visit to that Swindon will be possible.

We are meeting Roy and Phyl tomorrow at Bratch bottom lock. We decided not to get there today as planned in order to do some proper cruising tomorrow rather that just go up 3 locks. This will charge the batteries and heat the water.

We have now cruised the Droitwich Canals making the Huddersfield Canals the only waterway left for us to complete. Our visit to Droitwich did not go as planned. It was just me at the Calvary Baptist Church on Sunday evening as Janice was not feeling well. She got worse during the night and so a visit to the Merdical Centre was priority on Monday. Janice was sent from there to Worcester Royal Hospital for further tests. The outcome was an infection treated with antibiotics. My plan to walk the town trail was delayed until early evening. In due course there will be pictures of this.

I am having a bit of difficulty keeping the warerway photos up to date as we have been cruising longer days. So more photos and less time to process them. At the time of writing I have completed to when we were at Tardebigge Top Lock. I'll be adding to this during next week.

We cruised in June around the Leicester ring.
