As my dear old Dad would have said ……..

Anne and John, our really good friends from Staines, arranged to come and spend this weekend with us. They would have to be really good friends wouldn’t they to be prepared to undertake a three hour drive on a Friday evening?!! Now where, I wonder, would a good place be for them to meet us?  How about the lovely Audlem – at the bottom of the flight of locks?  Sensible eh?  As my dear old dad would have said, “Why have a dog and bark yourself?”!!  Winking smile

On Saturday, after a look around Audlem and a visit to the craft mill, (comfy chair supplied for husband to snooze in whilst wife peruses goods!) we set off up the flight and finally moored up for the night at the bottom of the Adderley locks.

On Sunday we went from Adderley to Market Drayton.  By the time we reAnne & John 008 (800x600)ached the top of the Adderley locks it was raining and, sheltering under a tree by the lock, was a very large PIG!!  She belongs to the farm and apparently often wanders off but returns in her own good time.  Next week’s sausages on the tow path?!!  Perish the thought!  There were also two escapee sheep!

Thank you for a lovely weekend you two – see you again at Christmas time!

Before we reached Audlem we spent a night at Hack Green and the sunset was fab-u-lous:-
