Norbury Junction

We’re staying here for another 2 nights, we are on a 5 day mooring.   The weather was ok-ish yesterday so we walked along the towpath to Gnossal (pronounced:  knows all) and did a shop.  The weather got a bit wet on the way down so we shared the only cab in town back to the boat.  The lady who was the actual passenger calmed down when she found out not only were we paying for our travels, I was also paying for beer.   She was very happy then.  Jane arrives tomorrow in the morning.  We’re having a car for the day.  Then we shall head down towards Brewood (pronounced:  brood).  We will probably move on Friday morning.

I tried to find out what sort of car it was, but it just caused a pub argument.    But apparently there are two.

The strangest thing I've seen on the canal.   I'm guessing all his money is hiding under the tent.
