Sunday Lunch at The Shroppie Fly

Went to the food festival at Greenfeilds today to see if there was anything new or different this time, some olives stuffed with jalepeno peppers and some chilli jam. There were a few less stalls than the last time, most of the regulars were there no fish stall and only 1 new stall that i could tell selling pickles and preserves. That was just before lunch so decided to get a pub lunch. We almost went to the Junction Inn at Norbury Junction but Elianne said she wanted to go to the Shroppie Fly at Audlem, it is a regular weekend lunch place for us and has been part of our canal holidays for the last two years and will be again this year. Food was up to the usual high standard but a little slow coming out, but that is to be expected on a sunny sunday afternoon. Nice pint of Timothy Taylors Landlord to wash the roast pork down.

Then off for the obligatory walk on the towpath, had a chat with a couple on an Ownerships boat, nice idea but still dont think that a share in a boat will give us the freedom we want. Elianne managed to get a ride on a boat back up through lock 14 and that put a big smile on her face.
