Coventry Basin to Alderman’s Green

Map picture

 

We set off from Coventry basin heading for Tesco’s at the Ricoh Arena. Just before we got to Tesco’s we came across a large teddy bear still floating in the canal, which we had noticed on our journey down to the basin. I pulled the stern over towards it and Jo helped it towards the boat with the long mop until I could grab it and drag it out.

Bonnie the Bear

Jo has named her Bonnie the Bear. She looks very depressed, sitting on the cabin roof, but wouldn’t you if you were wet and cold, and had been swimming in the canal for a few days. Once she has dried out we will find her a new home where she will be loved. We moored just north of New Inn bridge No.8 which is very handy to get to Tesco’s.

Tesco Ricoh Arena Coventry

It is a huge 24hour store, and we spent nearly 2 hours there! Mind you we were not rushing. Once we had finished shopping and had lugged all the shopping back to the boat, Jo packed everything away whilst I carried on cruising.

We continued on through Sutton’s Stop lock, to just before the Coventry Cruising Club moorings, near Whiting's Bridge No.5.
