May Cruise - Day 1

We left home at 9am.  I was rather tired: having vowed not to stay up all night watching the election results, it was so fascinating I didn't go to bed until 3.30am.  However the journey to Norbury Junction was problem-free, and we arrived at 12.30.  Lunch in the cafe, then a very constructive discussion with Simon from Norbury Wharf, about Debdale's future.

Having unloaded the car and taken delivery from Tesco, we set off in bright sunshine at 2.10, heading south.  In spite of the sun it was quite chilly, as there was a cold wind.  Debdale has a new look, having been repainted during the winter and having new signwriting, which looks fantastic.

Being lock-free, this isn't my favourite stretch of canal, but it was looking lovely in the sunshine.  We moored up at 4.45 at Wheaton Aston.

7.5 miles, 0 locks.

She does look fine in her new paint, don't be the first to scratch on her. Who was the painter?
I hope you don't have to pay again for it and that it was something that had been paid for before it all went pear shaped.
