Ploughed on to an excellent weekend.

Hello Dear Readers.

Wow what an amazing few days we have had.

On Saturday morning we were up at 5am, we left Drawbridge at 6am in the dark and headed off for Birmingham.
It was quite eerie in the dark, but the Little Owl kept us company.
After a fabulous morning's cruise we arrived at Neptunes Wharf, Tipton at 12.30 pm and moored up. After some lunch we walked to The Black Country Living Museum to find lots of Historic Boats moored in the Museum and more outside.
The weather was a little overcast at times, but thankfully the rain stayed away and the general public were coming in to see the boats and enjoy the living museum.
We had an amazing day chatting to friends old and new. Saturday evening we joined Allyson and Derek on Birmingham to have a Chinese Take Away with others. It was a brilliant evening, with lots of chit chat and laughter. The food was excellent as was the company.
Sunday dawned and some of the historic boat owners were already leaving with their boats. They obviously had places to be early in the morning. We were up by 8am and the sun came out. After breakfast we walked to the museum to get in an early natter with boaters. The museum was soon alive with people wandering around looking at the boats and the museum. Keith and I decided we would have the Fish and Chips from the museum chips shop for lunch and we also decided to go and queue early, so at 11.30 am we stood first in the queue. The door for the shop opened at 11.40am and we were the first through the door. On the Saturday they had people queuing for two hours, so we were not going to get caught out.
After our fish and chip early lunch, we went to the Bottle & Glass for a pint of their best beer and sat outside to watch the world go by. It was an amazing time, made all the better by catching-up with friends. We will definitely come to this event again. At 4pm a lot of the historic boats were on their way and everything was winding down. We eventually got back to the boat, where we were met by mog and dog, who wanted their tea. I was still stuffed from lunchtime, so did not bother with much.
it was early to bed for us both as we were both shattered.
An amazing weekend.

Pop back soon xxx

  1. I saw you on Saturday morning passing through Old Turn Junction. We were moored in the Oozells St Loop. I'm sorry it wasn't more than a passing glimpse -- it's ages since we've seen you.

  2. Hi Adam.
    I sincerely apologise for not replying sooner. It seems that blogger is not telling me when people have left me comments and I have just realised I have a load, which includes yours. Hopefully we may see you somewhere else. It has been an absolute age since we last met up xxx
