This morning the mist had cleared and a bright sunny morning greeted us. Today we wanted to make for Market Drayton, mostly a cruising day apart from the 5 Tyrley locks. Going up this flight can be difficult as those bywashes are vicious, pushing the boat against the wall when trying to enter the bottom locks. But going down was so much easier. But before getting to the locks we had to negotiate the long long rows of moored boats (at least a mile of them) and those long narrow cuttings, dark and dank without any sunlight making it feel cold and oppressive.

Made it to Market Drayton and no TV signal. Moved a few feet and still no TV signal. Moved once more beyond the bridge to the water point and at last, we could get a few channels. But those channels were what I call ''dross channels' so we decided to watch a film from Netflix instead.
And as for my heading,
