Yesterday morning I was going into Tesco's at 7.15am and dodging around the cleaners and shelf stackers to get fresh food that will see us through into next week. Forty minutes later I was dumping the bags on the boat and changing trainers for walking boots as we set off towards Shugborough and Great Haywood and our weekend destination.
The new Tesco store, open 24hrs and convenient access from Bridge 66 on the T&M.
Nanook like, Joe faces the day
Walking along Brindley Bank towards the Aqueduct that crosses the River Trent, the river a constant companion to the canal throughout this stretch.
I have a big grin plastered to my face, oops, men in white coats approaching...
