|Cambrian Wharf, Birmingham|
With no reason to stay in Hopwood I untied about 8.30 this morning and set off for Brum. I was the first boat of the day through Wast Hill Tunnel, but then met a steady stream of southbound boats for the rest of the morning.
I need to stay in Birmingham for longer than the 48-hours permitted on most of the visitor moorings so I was lucky to find a space at Cambrian Wharf (can you spot me? I'm right at the centre of the pic.) I winded at the entrance and reversed onto the pontoon successfully and without hitting a thing: needless to say there was no audience.
Most of the boats here appear to be unoccupied and I'm a bit concerned that the (keg beer) pub that overlooks the basin might be noisy with "balcony drinkers" later in the evenings, but it's only Tuesday so I'll give it a try. I can always move down to the other 14 day moorings at St. Vincent Street if it gets too much.
