A hot one!

 After reversing for water on the Coventry Canal, we left Fradley Junction about 09:45 - the temperature on the roof of RnR is already 29.5 degrees  ...
 ... and not long after pulled over to let this boat through the bridge - hey, its Tina and Colin - enjoy the Weaver guys!
 The hedgerows and towpaths are blooming gorgeous! These lovely white flowers were like a carpet of snow in the heat!
 There were boats all over the place!
 More down there too!
 Hopwas Hays Wood on the right - a military firing area
Crossing Fazeley Junction ...
 ... and ascending the 2 Glascote Locks - the only ones today - the temperature on the roof now is 39 degrees - hot, hot, hot indeed!
Passing Laplander at Samuel Barlow's ...
... and under the M42 ...
 ... past Pooley Hall ...
 ... when a short time later ...
 ... came working boat Kestral towing an 'engine-less' working boat
 10 past 5 and we're here for the night ...
 ... just before bridge 50 ...
... and the sun is still strong and very hot!
Early start tomorrow - 11 locks to ascend at Atherston and 13 miles to Hawkesbury!
