A lazy start to the day we had read the papers, done the crosswords and drunk tea before thinking about getting up and dressed and on our way. The joggers had been passed at seven am and a buzz saw was busy at the top of the Brewood embankment from just after seven and as we set off at 8.40 the offspring of Brewood were squealing and shouting enmasse ahead of being caged for lessons.
Our first stop was going to be Wheaton Aston for diesel.
Fuel here is still very reasonable and maybe the cheapest on the cut. As we were almost finished fueling another Narrowboat was pulling in. We moved across to the towpath side and moored up to have some late breakfast or early lunch resuming our journey after a couple of hours but we did cram a hot shower into that break.
