The sun was shining brightly this morning when we got up, but as soon as we put on our boots ready to set off, the clouds rolled in again, and that is how it has been most of the day – cloudy and humid with the occasional short spell of sunshine. We stopped at Sainsbury’s in Kidderminster to top up the shopping as we don’t know when we will be able to do a decent shop again. After I had put the shopping away and left to prep the lock, Rog had a visitor, Irene from nb Free Spirit, a fellow blogger. They sent us a message last night to say they were only a mile or so in front of us. Sorry I missed you, hopefully we will meet again in Stourport. We are now moored near Bullocks Lane Bridge, just short of Stourport. We want to go down onto the Severn and moor there, so we thought it best to wait until tomorrow morning.
The above are all part of a mural underneath the bridge which carries the traffic in the earlier photo – showing boys through the years, starting in the 1920s and ending at the present day – and very good they are too!
