Yarwood passing Croxton Flash on the T&M
On the Middlewich, Nantwich bound
We turned onto the Wardle canal and through the first lock onto the Middlewich Arm of the Shropshire Union canal. We found ourselves a remote mooring for the night in the countryside. The next morning we set off again with the intention of getting to Nantwich.
Making the turn on to the Shropshire Union Canal from the Middlewich Arm
Moored by Nantwich basin
We moored on the 24hr visitor moorings by the basin but every boat that passed caused Yarwood to scrape on the 'shroppie shelf' much to Joe's irritation and Fletcher's consternation. After a flying visit into town where we bought a stack of motorhome magazines to browse/devour ahead of a potential life change in a couple of years time.
Yarwood serviced and away out of Nantwich
Wednesday morning, kitted out in full wet gear we serviced Yarwood and left town again but on the way I spotted a familiar boat moored just along from the services, Nb. Ellen. Jon and Angela had been at the Audlem music festival over the BH weekend and had only just arrived in Nantwich. I stopped a chatted for 10 minutes or so and then had to run along the towpath to catch up with Himself and the boat...the old ticker was having a *'goodness gracious' moment by the time I caught up!
*And who know/recalls what I refer to here?
And lookee here, fellow bloggers, Angela and Jon on Nb. Ellen moored just along from our overnight mooring at Nantwich
Angela and Lola...
Jon got pushed out of the shot by the dog!
