We left Evesham and moved on as far as Offenham lock where we spent a couple of nights. Sunday morning Lesley and Joe delivered the two chairs that they were selling from NB Yarwood. It was great to see them again. Thanks both.
We had a good run to Bidford on Avon where we moored for the night in warm sunshine. Looking downriver we saw coming towards us NB Mystique III who we met briefly a couple of days ago. Moorings being in short supply they breasted up alongside and we spent a very pleasant evening on board Oakapple exchanging boating tales over a glass or two.
Having arranged to share the locks this morning upriver to Stratford we cast off soon after 9.00 am and cruised the six miles and six locks in bright sunshine, arriving in the basin by mid afternoon.
We were planning to go to Wetherspoons to take advantage of the wifi, so Julie and Kev joined us for what was left of the afternoon. As they are active members of the Wolverhampton boat club they were able to give us an insight into the social life of a boat club. Thank you both for your company over the last couple of days. Hope to meet again on our travels.
