Thunder and lightning

We are moored between Willeymoor and Povey's Locks listening to the thunder rumble overhead and Andy Murray win Olympic gold at Wimbledon.

For once I didn't get rained on working through Baddiley locks, lots of boats on the move particularly Anglo Welsh heading back to Bunbury. Most were due back tomorrow but we did meet one who was due back for four o'clock today. As it was nearly midday and by my reckoning they had a five and a half hour journey I think they might be late back!

Either business isn't very good for Viking at Whitchurch or all their boats are heading for Llangollen as we haven't seen a single yellow peril yet on the Llan.

Nothing much else to write about so I shall carry on enjoying Great Britain's success at the Olympics, I think it's 2 gold, 2 silver and a bronze so far today.

Today's journey 7.1 miles, 6 locks and 2 lift bridges

So far this year we have travelled 548.5 miles, 442 locks, 49 swing bridges, 9 lift bridges and 18 tunnels

In 2011 we travelled 461.4 miles, 444 locks, 3 swing bridges, 34 lift bridges and 15 tunnels
