Tixall Wide

Good cruising weather today the wind was gone and the warming sun was a bonus. We planned to cruise to Tixall Wide which is a mile short of the junction with the T&M at Haywood. Lots of boats on the move on this section of the canal, we stopped of at Stafford Boat Club briefly to check on the progress on NB William, Rob had her hauled onto the hard standing to do the blacking.

Having done FL's bottom earlier in the year I now consider myself a bit of an expert a know all in these matters. Yes, a very good job was being done, the only point I noted and kept to myself .. how come Rob is still clean and not splattered in the stuff like I was!

We carried on to moor at Tixall wide, we are now only 9 miles from where we started this years cruise in March. Jim & Joan, NB Two Jays, popped in for a cup of tea and a catch up.
