Narrow boat "Firefly" leaving the basin.
|View through Tividale aqueduct towards Netherton tunnel - lots of boats.|
|Passing through a former toll island, with Engine Arm aqueduct in the distance.|
Alan and I went shopping for a while, walking down to New Street. We had some kind of plan for our son Michael to visit us the following day, but it turned out to be difficult, so we decided not to stay another day.
|Narrow boat "Peacock" passes an unusually congested Birmingham.|
A quiet meal on the boat, then off to bed. For us, a very quiet day.
