Approaching Aston lock
Moored up at Weston, all of 4 miles, 3 locks and only a couple of hours after starting out.
We took full advantage of the tank of piping hot water that the engine had produced on the short cruise and had long and luxurious showers before changing into something tidier and walking up into the village to try out the local inn. The dogs came too and this allowed Joe to see Floyd's Style Performance. Nothing new for me having to hoick five and a half stone of Labrador over a style/gate/fence but Joe had yet to participate in this activity and here was his chance as I stood back and let him manhandle our dozy dog over the two styles en route to pub.
