A nightout at Hopwas.

On Monday morning Marlene had the tooth removed at Atherstone Dental Surgery. That done we were on our way again, we did seven of the eleven Atherstone locks before mooring for the night. We woke to a sunny morning on Tuesday so we took advantage of the good weather. Completing the remaining four locks we carried on to Polesworth where we did some shopping and had lunch. After a shower as we had lunch we set of for our night mooring at Alvercote. Just before we moored the rain came again but quite heavy this time. A heavy frost greeted us next morning, so before leaving we stocked up on coal at the near by marina. It proved to be a nice day once the sun got some strength. Topping up water at Fazley Junction, we then carried on to Hopwas, mooring at lunch time. In the evening we went to the Tame Otter for a night out. While stood at the bar I nearly spoke to the man at the side of me as I thought it was my old mate Lewis. Just as I was about to say hello he turn toward me and I realised it wasn't him, could have been embarrassing but the resemblance was uncanny.

Yesterday we did the last section of the Coventry Canal and stayed the night at Fradley. We are now moored at Barton turns where Marlene checked with the marina that they were expecting us on the 1st December for our three month winter mooring, they were. The picture is the entrance to the Tame Otter.
