May Day – normal service resumes

After yesterday's traumas, what a contrast! Sun on the Shroppie, warmth in the air, people looking cheerful, all springtime's reproductive results on display on the water and in the fields. Lunch of homemade bread that had risen and baked as we travelled, and one of my best beloved's Scotch broth sort of soup made with stock from the bones of Sunday's chicken.

We picked up the stove door, mended overnight for a pittance by yesterday's friendly engineer, and at Wheaton Aston topped up the diesel tank for the best price this side of Kuwait.

We passed under bridges…


over aqueducts…


moving at a very different pace…


with time to look…


Only from the canal do you only see Brewood church like this…


 and stop for lunch like this…



And we're still an hour ahead of schedule for meeting up with my best beloved's brother on the Llangollen next week. A very good day!
