Carried on pootlin' today. The sun hid until we stopped and then came out. We leave the Trent and Mersey tomorrow and turn off into the Coventry canal to continue our epic voyage south. One of the things I wanted was to get more exercise while away. My knee doesn't like running anymore and my bike wouldn't fit into the hire car on the way back to the boat but my inflatable canoe would. I actually blew it up several days ago but wanted a quiet place with no onlookers to watch the inevitable cock up followed by a large splash. Well ta da! I stayed dry. Best fifty quid I've spent on Amazon, so within only a few months I will have the physique of an Olympic rower!!
