We have also decided on a strategy - to be called the 'Sunday Roast challenge'. Every Sunday we will ensure we are near a pub and give their Sunday lunches marks out of ten. Something to really look forward to!! The first contender, the Red Lion in Hopwas, only got four as the veg was undercooked. That said, the beer was fine.
We've now moved on and are in the village Atherstone in the middle of a flight of eleven locks. We'll soon be on the Grand Union with wider locks and more boats but hopefully, warmer, less fizzy beer.
Sorry for the boring photo of an alternator but it caused me so much grief it had to be named and shamed.
