London yesterday, Birmingham today, Ross on Wye tomorrow!
In Birmingham, we creatures of habit were thrown off kilter when for the first time ever, our usual car park was full. We followed signs to an alternative, not so very far away and enjoyed a different walk along the canal.
We loved the Old Turn junction - a choice between Wolverhampton (3 locks), Fazeley (18 locks) or Worcester (58 locks) and felt that this information could well prove the deciding factor in choosing which route to take.
This restored stretch of the canal is delightful with plenty to see. Today was no exception, for as we turned around, the Saville Cut was approaching, perhaps having navigated all 58 locks en route from Worcester?
The reflections on the water were fantastic.
We could have watched the comings and goings all afternoon, but instead, we headed into Symphony Hall to hear a concert of Brahms and Schubert.
