Knowle and Thrupp Wharf
To Knowle on the Grand Union just outside Solihull today, for a boat test. It was pretty cold when I arrived, but the sun was out and it soon warmed up, although it stayed quite hazy.
On the way home, I called in the check on Briar Rose. We haven't been up since our brief trip out between Christmas and New Year -- which I think must be the longest time since we've owned the boat. Everything looked OK (although I didn't turn the water back on). There was still enough credit on the electricity, and the engine started first time. It was so sunny and warm I could quite easily have come up with a reason why I needed to go for a little cruise, but in fact I got back in the car and headed home.
