What a beautiful start to the day with the sun streaming through the windows. It was up and straight off for our short trip down to Stafford. Again lots of boats on the move and we conveniently met a few at the locks coming the opposite way. I'm loving the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal, lovely scenery and the locks all seem to be well maintained with paddles not too difficult to raise. It was a couple of years ago we were along here going the other way, it's amazing when things start looking familiar and memories come back.

Whilst waiting for a lock to fill a CRT person passed by with iPad in her hand so guess she was out sighting and logging boats. Unfortunately we weren't included in her data gathering - again!! James obtained our sightings a couple of days ago and according to them this year, as in 2015, they have us travelling a total distance of 15 miles over a maximum range of 10 miles. So we have sent an email to them.
