Had a nice quiet night at our mooring last night, would stop there again if passing this way.

Headed on to Brum today and now moored near Gas Street Basin. The canals around these parts are far from busy, we only passed two other boats on the move today and hardly any boats moored up along the way.

The weather took a turn for the worse today, cold and wet. We lit the fire as soon as we moored up to help dry out our damp clothing.

Will explore the city tomorrow – weather permitting – the forecast isn’t great.
