Day 7, 8 and Nine. Playing in Birmingham.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all.
On Friday we set off from Catherine de Barnes, in a breeze and a bit of drizzle. To be honest it was not to bad. The outskirts of Birmingham are actually quite pretty in their own way.
It was an extremely blustery night and heavy rain, but we were fine where we were moored.
Saturday morning dawned and we decided that we would spend it in the Thinktank.
On our return to the boat, we popped into see our friends Lou and Alison. We spent a lot of time chatting and laughing over coffee, before it was time to let them get on and I needed to do something for dinner. The wind finally calmed down overnight, which was a blessing, because it has given us disturbed nights.
Sunday morning. St. Patrick's Day and we were going to do something we have never done before and that was go to the 3rd largest St. Patrick's Day parade in the world.
Old Crown pub for a pint. It is the oldest pub in Birmingham dating back to 1368. The queue was extremely long.
Pop back soon. xxx
