Sorry everyone I have been idle for a while but we have got all our Christmas cards out.
We have been to Combeswood canal trust basin and back to the Staffs & Worcs their
Diesel price is very good 81p a ltr and visitor mooring free for 7 days it was a little windy
when we left and I struggled to get out of the basin new box cover christened. We
stopped at Merry hill shopping center to ride out the storms and for a little retail therapy.
That was curtailed as our credit card was used illegally by some scrote so now we are
cardless until the new ones get to John and he can get them to us.We had problems with
our antivandle key so we bought a new one at Combeswood but it is as worn as our original.Looks like someone went into their shop and swapped their duff one and left it on the shelf  to be sold and we bought it so will have to buy another will check it this time we are moored at Wimbourne for tonight Beryl nipped to Sainsburys to do a little shopping got to keep me fed. A treat tonight meal in the Wagon & Horses. Well it is two for one 'Who me tight never'.
See you soon Dave & Beryl

Now moored at Stourbridge no designated visitor moorings a wasted opportunity, so we are moored just before the water point. We plan to stay 2 nights then move back onto Dudley we had hoped to go through Netherton Tunnel but it is closed for the winter major repairs needed so we will have to retrace our route back to Staffs & Worcs. I am attempting to work out what I need from Wickes / Screwfix to connect the wood burner back boiler to the radiators may as well spread the heat to the back of the boat.It's a
 mixture of compression copper and plastic pushfit connections.

A wet day in Stourport but we don't plan on moving, we went for a walk around the Basins
and then up into the Town its not a bad shopping area but there are more charity shops
 than proper shops. We are going to have evening meal in Weatherspoons for a change
will stay tomorrow night then return north to have a look at the Stourbridge canal. Beryl
is busy with another jigsaw.

Just to update everyone, we are currently moored on the visitor moorings at Kinver
on Staffs & Worcs awaiting Dave of Db Canopies to return with our new Pram cover
and cratch cover but its raining here at the moment so we are waiting for the forcasted
 bright weather. Unfortunatly we have had to overstay as there are only 24 hr moorings
 here. Not that they are queuing up for them not much moving at the moment. We had
 a glorious day yesterday we went for a walk to the rock houses and the Farm shop
at Kinver Edge. We where walking for 4 hrs so it will keep us fit it was very interesting.
Just a Few Photos.
