Day 28: Tipton to the Black Country Living Museum.
A funny old morning. I woke to the sound of rain on the roof and the wind blowing a hooley, which was not want we wanted. Although we were not in any hurry to leave our overnight mooring at Tipton, we did not want it blowing a hooley, because we needed to wind.
Before setting off, we walked down into Tipton, to have a look in the three charity shops they have there. I went looking for a knitted tank top and came back with two Dilly Court books, which I do not have. There were a couple of tank tops, but way to big for me, so I drew a blank again. I can completely recommend the charity shops in Tipton, because they are cheap and not there to rip you off. There are bargains to be had, which makes a nice change. The three shops help local charities.
Back on the boat, I made us a coffee and we were just sat talking, when there was a knock on the boat and a lady standing on the towpath announced that she and her husband Lindsay follow Keith's railway blog. They are over from Australia for 6 months and cruising the canals for 4 months. They hoped that they may see us somewhere on the system and low and behold they came past us and moored up, so they could come and say "hello" and to see the railways layout.
Beth and Lindsay have their own blog, telling of their cruising adventures in the UK. Such a lovely couple and we wish them well with their cruising. They were to join us at the BCLM later on.
