My parents came up to see us in Brum – by longboat. It was peculiar to see the city from a different angle; the 19th century styled boat looked very out of place next to the all the modern “luxury” apartments. We even went under a building site. Their mooring space was very convenient, practically under the Hyatt hotel, so it was a very short walk to get dinner. Tomorrow we’re going up to Wolverhampton on the canal.
