Gailey to Penkridge

Today is tinged with a little sadness as it is the fifth anniversary of when our beloved Callum departed this world. Time is doing a fairly good job in healing but I still miss him terribly.

Today started bright and sunny and we continued on our journey down to Penkridge, there were many boats on the move both ways and we were lucky at the locks in not having to queue until the last one at Penkridge itself. We were third in the queue and by the time it was our turn there were about four more behind us. We stopped shortly afterwards and headed into the village and had a look around the market, stopping at Jaspers the bakery for a loaf of the best bread ever.

Fishing competition, most were friendly and said hello, one even thanked us for taking it easy
