Last night we went to the “Open Mic Night” at the King’s Head pub, just above the moorings in Upton. The standard of entertainment was superb and I’d say it’s probably the best open mic we’ve been to so far.
The other day I bought a load of apricots from Upton market but they were too dry to eat raw so this morning I bottled them in Amaretto syrup to have later in the year.
We carried on up river to Worcester, passing through the huge Digliss Lock. Seeing the size of those gates made me REALLY glad the lock’s automated!
