Last night was a very warm night and spent the evening having drinks and snacks with Jackie and John sitting on the towpath at Fradley Junction.
Tonight we are moored in Alrewas where they are preparing for their annual art event.
Now that the batteries we purchased in Skipton have finally returned to them by the courier we can now relax.
It was decided to cruise long days to get back to Burton to talk to the courier but now we can stay at Fradley Junction for a day or two.
Just after we had seen Ray off from the station we noticed a steam powered boat in the lock.
So rushed back to the boat to get photographs only nearly to miss the chance as a hotel butty was being pulled past by it's crew.
After finally getting the batteries sorted, Ray joined us at Burton on Trent for his annual stay with us.
We cruised to Fradley Junction where we met Rita and Scooby and had a meal and drinks together.
