Far from an interesting day today. In fact apart from having to secure one of C&RT's work barges, and watching a very reluctant horse crossing a lift bridge, its been pretty dull. Only bonus being the weather. Glorious and sunny but still very chilly.
The run into Birmingham doesn't get any better the more one does it. Dismal and depressing and full of the usual amount of graffiti. Even the guillotine lock at Kings Norton Junction was covered with the stuff.
Wow Birmingham was buzzing. Loads and loads of people milling about, in bars and balconies of eateries. A new iron fence has been placed by one of the pubs. Health and Safety no doubt but Ian reckons its to stop the drunkards from doing a nose dive into the canal. We found a mooring without problem, on the side we wanted away from the main thoroughfare and hope to stay for a couple of days......or there again we may change our mind and head off for the Black Country Museum instead. We will make that call on the morn.
