My journey down the Staffs & Worcester canal continues, picking up from Compton where I moored at the end of the last vlog, and heading south through Kidderminster and eventually ending up in Stourport. En route I see an unusual butty and get thoroughly whacked on the nose by another boat exiting a lock at an awkward angle.
After the fun and frolics of the Boat-Tubers’ Christmas meal (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzT6DEuK91o), we all decided to meet up again for a summer barbecue. By boat, train and car we all congregated a nice convenient spot in the Midlands and ate sausages. This is a very adhoc record of some of the afternoon.
High drama in this video as I become a sitting target for oncoming boats, stuck under a bridge when my propellor picks up something large and unpleasant. In journey terms, I come to the southern end of the Shroppie and turn right, heading south on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal.
I know it’s not long since the last “not a vlog” but the journey along the Shropshire Union canal was so pretty and so sunny that I couldn’t resist making up another compilation. Get a cuppa, put the video to full screen, sit back and relax to this.
Continuing down the Shropshire Union canal and going under an awful lot of bridges. I mean, a really amazing number in quick succession including one very well-known one. Plus a water refill and a bit of stickiness as I try to be a good boater.
