I am Linda and along with my husband Richard and our dog Muffin we enjoy our summers on the UK's canal system

Thursday 21st July

Wahey! A day off :-) We decided that my knee could with a day’s rest and also the forecast wasn’t good. We woke up to rain but after one other short sharp shower the day was fine and, in fact, warm in the afternoon. We had a quiet morning pouring over maps trying to decide where to go. We had already decided on our route but then had a change of mind as we will be doing the Worcester and Birmingham canal with my sister and brother-in-law in August and as the Tardebigge Flight, which consists of 30 locks, is on that canal we decided that once is enough! We went for a walk in the afternoon – not too far for me but Richard went on further and came across the Stratford Canal. We discovered though, that it is a very wealthy area and if you don’t have electric gates then you are a nobody!! In the evening we visited the local hostelry, The Tom O’The Wood which looked really charming and old from the outside (see the left hand building in the photo) but has been made into a gastro-pub and is rather spoilt and soulless on the inside
