boat through Wast Hill TunnelAfter iPad Grand Prix highlights and water point showers the washing machine went on and we headed in through Tardebigge Tunnel. A ubelievablly quiet run up through Alvechurch, a bit low on food we thought about stopping before figuring we had enough ingredients for another carbonara so sailed on by.

Lunch time when we reached Hopwood, plenty of visitor moorings free so we pulled over with just one other boat. And then the fun began. An explosion of half term hireboats arrived dumping masses of children all over the towpath, they wasted no time acting out Frozen, again and again Hopwood - Worcester and Birminghamand again – thanks (I think) Faith and Daisy, if it wasn’t for you we wouldn’t have had a scooby what was going on. Washed the boat and polished the mushrooms, things livened right up with boats T-boning each other along with a bit of yTardebigge Tunnelelling.

Walked up to Wast Hill Tunnel this evening and watched boat after boat disappearing into the gloom.
