Pershore to Evesham

Another hot sunny day.

We set off from Pershore around 10.30am, having filled up our water tank

The scenery on the River Avon is stunning. We have both said, "You forget how nice the Avon is"

The distance from Pershore to Evesham is 11 miles including 3 locks.

Chadbury Lock is usually interesting as you have to steer past a weir to get to the lock.

 However the flow was very slow which is unusual as it usually pushes the boat towards the bank, and you have to use full throttle to negotiate the boat to the lock landing stage.

The trip took four and a half hours, and we are now in Evesham.

We were told by other boaters that there is a problem with drunken Polish people at Evesham moorings, but we found no such problems, (Never listen to other boaters)

We woke up this morning to rain, so not sure what the plans are yet.
