Hi all, well we have just completed 77 miles and 147 locks bringing ‘Chieftain’ canal boat back to the ‘Old Barn’ from Stoke Prior. 4 fantastic days with great March sun and temperatures up in the 18 degree region. Along the way we saw the March hares, March lambs and almost had the canal to ourselves – Chieftain is a great cruising canal boat, very comfortable and accommodating. We were up at 6.30 am and motoring by 7 am with breakfast at 9.30, bacon rolls and lots of coffee. Lunch was taken by the side of the canal around 1 pm and we stopped at around 5.30 pm. 2 meals on board and 1 in the local pub.
All in all, a great 4 days – strong shoulders and a a little lost around the ‘waist line’!!
