Our mooring this week is on the services point at Sneyd Junction. These are on the off-side and secured at night. We are moored here as there are no designated visitor moorings. When we arrived and sought advice we found 4 C&RT men having lunch. We were told to stay where we were which was the serives point.

We have enjoyed the much better waether this week and took the opportunity to do some maintenance jobs. More in the diary page.

Matt, Ann and family and Millie came to see us last Saturday at Great Haywood. We spent the time in Shugborough Hall gardens.

We have had quite a fraught day today.
Firstly it took us over 3 hours to travel the 5 miles from Wolverhampton.
Secondly we needed to sort out our internet access to Smile for which we went by bus to Wolverhamopton. It took much discussion and time to do this.
Thirdly having been told that the access gate to the moorings was closed at 6pm when we got back at 5:45 pm the gate was already closed. We manage to attract attention from one of the moorers from the opposite towpath who kindly let us in.

Please look at our cruising plan to find out more. Our plan has been updated to show our return to Packet Boat Marina. If you would like to meet/visit please contact us. To find out how use the 'Contact Us' link on the menu bar above.

We have been asked to provide pictures of our cruising for the 'Link' meeting at Boyn Hill Baptist Church. A page has been added for this purpose which you may find of interest There will be a new set of pictures for each time a meeting takes place. I am adding the pictures as we progress.

We are cruising this year from mid April to October. We are doing so while Matt, Ann and family live in our home while their's is having extensive building work.

There has been a change made to the Two Jays photos page. A new link titled 'Projects' has replaced the entries for 'Re-paint' and 'Bedroon makeover'. These now are included under the 'Projects' link together with new entries for 'Blacking' and'Freezer'.

You may be intereste to look at the information pages associated with the waterway slide shows. So far 7 of these have been completed.

If you are new to this site a good place to start is the 'Intro' link on the menu bar. There are introductory pages which, hopefully, will give you an appreciation of the contents. Regular visitors may find something new as well!
