Douglas Diary Sunday 6th April 2014 It is still raining on and off and to day we are turning towards the south still on the Staffs and Worcester canal cruising through Wolverhampton. It is surprisingly pretty on the canal side it is not raining as we cruise. At one lock, I met a puppy supposedly from the Labrador tribe (I think he wasn’t pure but I didn’t say anything) I taught him a few things about health and safety at locks, showed him how to safely play with a stick and we ran about a bit and after a lot of walking by lunch time, I was quite exhausted. This had been the plan I now understand because they all left me to guard the long kennels while they go off and visit Mr Carvery at Oddfellows Hall. They were gone quite a long time and when they came back, there was a small parcel of steak bits for me, rib eye medium rare, just as I like it! After lunch we cruised a little further to another pub called The Mermaid. This is a good overnight mooring as they have very good stuff called Banks’ which my bearded one likes and also a large car park. This is good because we are expecting a visit from my bearded one’s son Noah who is en route across country for his work. When he does arrive, after supper, he and my bearded one disappear to the Mermaid and they come back quite late. Sent from my IPad x
