Having just spent 10 days with my Mother in Poole it was time to return to "Gemma Joy" and continue my journey to Gloucester. The weather has been fantatic to be down at the seaside but have to say not that great for doing 30 Locks in one day!! Thankfully Stan on "Petronella" had managed to persuade two of his Grandchildren it would be a nice day out for them. On the last 5 Locks Allan Richards and his son Christopher also helped, and by this stage I was completly pooped.
One other thing to mention. I have been busy organising a Floating Market to take place in Birmingham on 28 and 29 September. I am hoping that this will be the largest UK Floating Market so far we have 15 confirmed Traders bringing their boats and I know that there will be at least 20 by the time September arrives so a couple of links concerning the Market
For those interested this is Julia Bradbury's walk along the Worcester and Birmingham Canal the canal I am covering at present. She does a far better job than me
