Venice of the Midlands

We enjoyed our little trip down to the canal this afternoon for the Tipton Canal & Community Festival. Thanks to the Tipton Community Association for their hard work. There was lots of action as we meandered to Owen Street and then the Malthouse Stables. We didn't take the 'taxi' ... though the boat trip did look fun.
Lots of lovely people to bump into and we drank in the (last?) sunshine of the summer.
Venice eat your heart out.

[for outsiders to the Black Country [like myself!] ... 'cut' is another word for canal]
we are looking at Exodus 20v3 in church tomorrow!
