Black over Bill’s Mother’s.

We had a later start than normal. It was all due to the weather. On waking at 6 am, all’s we could hear was rain thumping on the roof. It was the perfect idea to stay in bed and drink tea until 8 am when I had to get up and take paddy out for his walk. He hates getting wet and once back on the boat, he sulked in his bed until he had dried out.

By 10 am the rain had pretty much stopped, so having lit the back cabin stove, we decided to leave Rugeley and head off towards Fradley Junction. We had a good run on the whole to Fradley Junction, we decended the locks and then left the Trent and Mersey Canal and turned on to the Coventry Canal, where we stopped for water.


Black clouds were beginning to merg and it was clear a storm was looming.


On approaching Streethay Wharf, it was getting darker and so we were glad to have moored up outside King's Orchard Marina, south of Streethay Wharf on the top end of the Coventry canal. No sooner we had closed the boat up the heavens began to open and the thunder kicked in.
