Well that's the main line of the Shroppie ticked off. We turned right today onto the Middlewich branch which links this canal with the Trent and Mersey. Because we are off to Bath on Sunday to go and stay with clever clogs daughter for her graduation on Monday, we have put the boat into a marina. Its full circle as its the same marina we bought her from last April. Last time it was snowing, today is meant to be the hottest day of the year so far and I can believe it. When we get moving again we will be repeating the frantic trip we made last Spring to get to Manchester in time for the birth of grandchild number two. This time we will take it just a bit slower. There is the famous 'Heartbreak Hill' flight of locks which is actually rather pleasant and then its onto the Macclesfield canal where we now have our permanent mooring arranged.
Things you see on the canals 2:
Er - putting up a bloody great sign saying its a secret just isn't going to work now is it!! (actually its a museum from the Cold War - an old nuclear bunker)
Now forgive me if I'm wrong but putting a garden shed on top of a tiny little boat was never going to work.
