I guess it's the knowledge come the 4th it's going to go from nothing to full on summer season overnight.... no doubt that'll also add to the stoppages as locks ad structures get used much more from a relative standing start?
We'll be out there, going south on the Shroppie I think, minimising on locks and getting a feel for how busy it actually is. We can always just moor up and watch the boats go by.
It may also be the fact I know I've got to give the boat a decent 'spring clean' before we can enjoy it. It's all small scale stuff in the great scheme of things so I should just STFU as the internet says and get out there and blog about the beauty of the south Shroppie and the Staffs and Worcester canals.
Watch this space ....
