Day 34: Calf Heath to Rugeley.

Hello family, friends and followers.

After a disturbed nights sleep due to Sciatica and Costochondritis. Doing the 21 locks clearly upset both of them. On the plus side, I was awake to hear a Woodpecker sending morse code to its mates, which put a huge smile on my face.
After a heavy overnight frost, we woke to mist on the water, which always looks magical.
We set off for Gailey lock at 8.10am in beautiful sunshine, although it was still nippy.
Deptmoor Lock was the deepest lock of the day.
A Bee decided to have a lift with us. It sat on the mop head and soaked up the sunshine, before flying off.
Tixel Wide was incredibly quiet. Usually it is packed with boats, but not today. It is also noticeable that there is a lack of wildfowl around. There used to be Kingfisher, Swans, Grebe all in abundance, but the only thing we saw was a nesting pair of Swans and a few ducks.
Our first Lambs of the season. I never get tired of seeing them. Mum was being harassed by her babies for milk.
We have moored at Taft Bridge No.69 near Rugeley. 17.8 miles 14 locks.

Pop back soon.  xxx
