Monday 24 February

Training day.   I passed my RYA Inland Waterways Helmsman’s Certificate.  I discovered you are never too old to learn new tricks and had a thoroughly enjoyable day playing about on the cut.

We ended the day at Wheaton Aston and took Max for a walk to explore the village, as we’d never stopped here before.  The village was an extraordinary mix of old and new buildings and the church marked the heart of the village being just off the main road.   The staff in the Spar shop, opposite the church, were particularly welcoming.
