Frazeley to Polesworth. 2 Locks.

The boat was absolutely soaked with condensation this morning, apparently there was a hard frost early this morning. As we were still both chucking the Z's around at early o'clock we missed it.

Nice and warm last night though!

After a quick run down to the junction itself for a top up of water we headed south once more. That little trip down to here has completed another of the "Rings" for us.

Its quite surprising just how many canal miles and canals we have covered in the past seven months.

Back up through the two Glascote Locks where this bush is just plain showing off.

Passing Alvecote Marine where these two seventy footers were nestled alongside the pub. They looked enormous, you can buy seventy footers to live on giving you massive amounts of space, but the main problem is that you cannot get around the whole system as they are too big for some of the locks. All depends what you want to do with your boat.

As promised, here are a few of those gardens we passed the other day.

Our mooring for the night (again) as D wanted to repeat her success with the fishing rod.

We had a Bulrush near the fire last night, this Bulrush was the one we missed with the hairspray, we did not know that at the time.
This thing literally exploded with seeds when the heat got to it, you have never seen such a mess!! then, to add insult to injury, the hot air carried them all over the boat.
I have a feeling that we are going to be finding those seeds for a very long time to come.

Until next time..........................
