On Saturday morning, Tim arrived with Olek at 7.50 – they left Dalry at 5am, so it was a quick trip down, although Tim said the traffic was building up by the time he got to us – and then he had to drive back!
|I think this is Bridge 92 that we were moored near. I like that its RH side isn't exactly vertical!|
The rain had stopped by the time he left, after being pretty much constant from about 2pm yesterday, so we had breakfast (Olek’s second, as he’d eaten before they left Dalry) and set off. It was a lock-free day, but busy. We stopped just south of Congleton, moored up carefully to avoid nettles, and went for a walk through some woods, across a golf course and down a lane back to the canal, arriving back at one of the snake bridges, where the towpath changes sides and there is a curved path across the bridge so the horses didn’t have to be unhitched.
|Feeding ducks is a key part of the trip, and I only look so much taller because I am standing on the stool!|
