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.

Hi Adam
What a pity we did not know you were going to Knowle as you could have called in for a coffee and June said that she would have made you a cake. We are only a couple of miles from the Wharf and regularly take Phoenix a walk along the canal there.
Hope you had a good holiday and all is well at your end.
