I'm sure the bridge holes have got narrower on this canal, I seem to be knocking the edges a bit more than usual, or is it an age thing. I have noticed that while driving a car I seem to get beeped at more often than I once used to and other drivers sometimes give hand signals to me that don't appear in the highway code.
Wednesday we put a big effort in, 28 locks and three lift bridges got us to Hockley Heath, a quiet restful night after the the days exertions. Met my first Vloggers on the towpath on my way back from the post box.
|Lock ducks., no quack.|

When we took a left turn onto the Worcester & Birmingham canal at King's Norton junction we met Roly & Bev on nb Klara, we followed them southwards through the 2726 yds Wast Hills tunnel to moor at Hopwood.
