Wednesday 26th July 2017 at Bournville.
Rain overnight and intermittently throughout the morning. We walked into the small centre of King's Norton.
The rain eased off in the early afternoon and we set off towards Birmingham. The finger post at King's Norton Junction shows the way we will go after Birmingham - on down towards Kingswood Junction and Stratford-upon-Avon.
At Bournville there are dedicated secure moorings, as historically Cadbury's raw materials and finished products came and went by canal.
M took the opportunity to dead-head the geraniums on MM as there had obviously been some heavy rain while we were away; many of the blooms were damaged and they had grown a bit straggly.
We poured a glass of wine and sat in the sunshine while M busied herself with the scissors.
Trip: 119 miles, 138 locks and 99.8 hours.
