The morning started bright & sunny so we made an earlish start at around 8:00. Even though it was sunny it was still very cold, especially on the exposed section between Coven and Hatherton. Quite a few boats about today, though we didnt have to queue at all, just occasionally wait for a boat already in a lock.
A “full english” was taken just outside Otherton Marina at around 11 o’clock and we arrives at Park Gate lock just after three.
I winded in the hire company’s basin (most of their boats were out) and we moored up and walk to Midland Chandlers.
They didn’t have a chimney our size (Liverpool boats have odd sized chimneys) but Heddi bought some magic stuff to clean boats with!
By now the weather was really warm and we had a very pleasant chug back to just below Boggs lock.
