Winter Mooring.

Slipping our moorings on Saturday morning at 8am we dropped down the Fradley Locks a descent of 35ft 8ins.Next stop Alrewas. The weather forecast for Sunday was heavy rain and high winds ,so the decision was made to go into the marina at Barton a day earlier than planned.The last thing we needed was to enter a strange boat yard in high winds. After a brief stop in Alrewas for shopping we continued on to the marina, arriving mid afternoon. At the office we booked in and received our berth number(pier 5-291),we found it without any problem and moored in our winter home.Later we took a walk round checking out the shops and facilities ending in the pub for a pint.Then it was back to the boat for the evening.When night descended the water front and shops were lit,it looked lovely.
It has been a great summer touring the Northern canals,now we have to catch up on some visiting and prepare for Christmas. In the new year we are going to Cyprus for three weeks.Weather and stoppages permitting we shall start our tour of the southern canals in April.All that's left is to thank you for reading our blog and hope you will join us again next year.
