As is becoming our custom we are taking a two night break away between other longer trips. We aim to find a spot to stay within 30 miles of home, it doesn’t matter if we know the area as the camp sites, hidden away usually show us a side to the area we haven’t seen before, so here we are on a CL site adjacent to, and part of Droitwich Spa Marina on the Droitwich Junction canal.
The canal towpaths are great for taking Layla for walks even though she always does her utmost to accidentally fall in.
The marina has 238 berths for narrow boats up to 70ft long and was opened in 2012,it has electric hookups and water points by each boat a purpose built toilet block with underfloor heating, a laundry room with washing machines and tumble driers and even a special shower room for dogs, I’m not sure how they reach the taps!
After pitching up we had a leisurely afternoon sitting in the sunshine then took a short exploratory walk before our evening meal. After we had eaten and chilled out we took a walk across fields and along a country lane and arrived at the Eagle and Sun pub, where a pint of ale for me and a G and T for Michelle was consumed. We walked back along the towpath in beautiful evening sunshine and sat out for some time watching the light slowly fade.
