Today we couldn't possible leave Alrewas before visiting the famous butchers to get some sausages, so before pulling pins, made that our first port of call. We were lucky that nearly all the locks were with us or at least had a boat approaching, so we sailed through in no time. It was a great day for a cruise with the sun shinning and winds light and everything greening up nicely. We reached Atherstone bottom lock 11 and decided to go through the first 2 There is a long pound before lock 9 so moored up just before the landing. Would you believe that no sooner had we settled down to dinner when we were hit by a private boat coming into moor behind us. It's not as if there was any breeze or even any other boats moored on our section. No! The lady on the helm cut the corner at 'to sharp an angle' and rammed into our side . She apologised but her hubby was a different kettle of fish. When Ian poked his head out to see what was going on the man swore at him and said 'what you gonna do about it?' Ian only went out to see if the lady was in difficulties. Ian felt it wasn't worth a reply but noticed that they carried on going instead of mooring by us. Some people are just plain grumpy, Total miles travelled 21,5 Locks 8 and 1 swing bridge, Time 9 hours.
