|Approaching our final lock at Wheaton Aston.|
We had not been sure whether Sarah and Jim would yet have returned with "Chertsey" from the Historic Boat Owners Club gathering at Droitwich, so it was a pleasure to find them back.
|Passing "Cetus" - Once an unpowered butty boat.|
I did get home eventually, but the complications meant an extra hour spent at New Street, and by the time I arrived back, I was truly knackered, even though the run up the M1 and M^ had not been too bad!
However Cath had a meal ready on arrival, and I was told that we were on for a final pub trip! I drove us, plus Sarah and Jim to a pub in Brewood. We had seen a lot of friends on this trip, and it was icing on the cake to spend our final evening afloat in the company of some more. Tomorrow we would have to drive home, and boating would sadly be over again for a couple of weeks.
