After the gorgeous weather on Good Friday the rest of the Easter weekend was usual Bank Holiday rain and along with it wind, another named storm, this time Katie, had hit. In between the showers we got the occasional bit of sun and did manage some nice walks around the nature reserve.
On Tuesday we moved off, passing a field of swans and then made our way through Drayton Manor Footbridge before stopping briefly for supplies at Fazeley Mill Marina. We arrived there at 1:30pm and according to their sign they are closed between 1pm and 2pm for lunch so we expected to wait, which wasn't a problem, but the lady there soon appeared and went about getting us a couple of bags of coal and gas whilst leaving us sorting the diesel. They always seem friendly and helpful whenever we have stopped there.
We were soon on our way again turning left at Fazeley Junction and onto the Coventry Canal, stopping opposite Peel's Wharf.
