Up the start of the Wheelock flight
Moored for the day
I was just getting ready to take Meg back down to the village for her half-five appointment when a boat went past, the crew waving.
It was NB Chuffed, who we were expecting to see at some point, but not quite as soon as this! They only left Stone on Wednesday!
Dave, Debby and dog Meg, NB Chuffed
And Meg finally got her makeover!
We made it up to Hassall Green today before the showers started in earnest, just having to put up with a couple of light showers before we got tied up. A few boats about, mainly going the same way as us, unfortunately.
Heading for Lock(s) 66
If you allow the bow fender to run up the buffer plate on the cill, you have to keep a lookout for obstructions!
We’ve had some heavy showers this afternoon, and it’s got considerably colder. Mags was laughing and shaking her head while I loaded those logs the other day. She’s not laughing now…
It’s a shame for those taking part in the London Marathon tomorrow. Breezy with showers is the forecast. At least it was fine for mine last weekend. The race tomorrow starts at 10:10, so the first elite finishers should be crossing the line around 2 hours later. We’ll move up to Rode Heath after watching the elites.
Locks 10, miles 2.
