A better start to the day, today. Fine and bright.
Away at around 10:30, and a ½ hour run to Marbury Lock. A bit of a queue, but soon we were through, and cruising on to Wrenbury.

A quick passage through the lift bridge, only had half a dozen cars waiting by the time it was back in position.

Stopped after the bridge to pop into the village for bread and milk.

Got off again at about 12:30, and after a quiet morning, it suddenly got very busy with boats. We had a gentle run down to the 3 locks at Baddiley. We were following another boat, so had to fill each lock before we could go through, but we weren’t in any hurry.

Queue at Baddiley No 3 lock
We pulled over for the night about 10 minutes after the last lock. All alone on the mooring for a while, but by 18:00 there were another 4 boats with us.

It’s been very hot in the sun this afternoon, so I left it a while before doing a bit of varnishing in the engine room, then cutting and polishing the RH side of the boat. Both sides done, now. She certainly looks better.

Locks 4, miles 6.
