In the morning we moved the boat over onto the visitor moorings to wait for Andrew and Sheila who were driving up from Dorset. They arrived just after two o’clock. Their stuff was unloaded then Sheila stayed on board and Andrew went off to park the car in Southport.
We then set off just about and hour’s chug to Burscough to where Andrew was going to catch the train. As we were mooring up there was a terrific thunderstorm.
Woth Andrew on board we carried on a little further to Hasall bridge. We cant go much further today as bridge 20 has been damaged and is only available for boat passage on Mondays and Fridays.
