Tuesday 17th July 2007

Location: Gas St. Basin, Birmingham  N52:28:35 W1:54:29   

Today: 12 miles, 0 locks. Total distance: 228 miles.   Total locks: 206

Showers, some very heavy. Warm

Up early this morning, pulled the pins and headed for Birmingham. Stopped off at Selly Oak on the way to visit a Sainsburry’s that is close to the canal. Moored up in Gas St Basin as it is a safe mooring spot close to the centre of Birmingham.

Had some really heavy thundery showers and hail stoners around lunch time today, luckily they were just after we had moored up in the basin so we were inside at the time.

Met up with son Glenn and went into the city centre to pick up a few bits and pieces. Birmingham centre is very much improved since the last time I was her eight years or so ago. Glenn has live in Birmingham for seven years now so knows his way around the place.
