Wet wet wet Worcester.

So it was raining when I woke up, it continued all day and into the evening, all in all about 12 hours of solid heavy rain.  This was the reason that the boats had fled Tewkesbury, appointments and wanting to avoid hours of boating in the pouring rain today, at least it wasn't windy.

David was THRILLED, he is a farmer and loves it when it rains, but seriously its been a very dry winter and we needed it.

A fine day of reading and blogging followed and a tiny bit of online shopping.  But in the evening the sun came out briefly and we met Nick (Our Son-in-law's dad)  at a pub on the edge of Diglis Basin, The Anchor.  A swift pint then a brief walk around the immediate area.

Visitor moorings just 100 metres from the lock.  Nice floaty pontoon.

Tewkesbury yeaterday, Worcester today and Stourport tomorrow.

Muchgiggling to be heard form these two novice sounding boats of "mature crews"

The lock landing for the Worcester Birmingham canal.

My first wild rose this year.

A section of Diglis Basin, I liked it here...

Then after the rain....

So this is Nick and David pointing out the highest flood marker on the old wall here that leads up to the Cathedral.  1947 was the highest in the brick markers, but only a fraction higher than 2014!!

Back to WaL and off tomorrow north again.
