Staying with us for the last two nights have been Catherine and Mark, who are fairly recent members of the Boaters' Christian Fellowship.
Today about 30 BCF members took part in an 0830 communion service in the Church Hall; there was free time before the main morning service in the church at 1045. This was café-style with plenty of coffee and cakes, and was very good. The theme was Jesus asleep in the boat during the storm, and what happened next.
What happened next for us was lunch in the Three Tuns pub; 30 people being served a roast meal and pudding. We had booked. This marked the end of the BCF weekend at Fazeley; we said our goodbyes, fired up Jubilee and made our way to Curdworth Locks and up the first three to Bodymoor Heath. This has given us a good start for our trip to the Black Country Boating Festival next weekend.
It is not uncommon to witness motorbikes on the towpath. I don't recall seeing one of these before.
