today everyone else has gone for what will doubtless be a very soggy hike up Kinder Scout. Having no raincoat and only one pair of usefull shoes, I opted to stay and mind the boat.
Between showers (and under some) I took a stroll to the nearest town, New Mills.
It has more arches than anywhere I've seen. It is built on the side of a very steep hill. The rivers Goyt and Sett meet in the bottom of the valley and the water supply ...
... walk back into Otley and finish some Christmas shopping but I thought it might be a good idea to pack up first and weigh the bags before we got anyplace near the market! Its a good thing we did, since we are running close to the maximum weight we can check without incurring ridiculous charges
We zipped around town hitting all the shops we thought might have the items we were looking ...
Set off from home just before 2.30pm. Had a good ride over on the motorway as you do. Got within 48miles of Manchester City and we had to drop down to 50mph then 40mph because of queueing. So had a steady run then it picked up again, then we came upon more queues. Then incident ahead which appeared to be roadworks. We were pleasEd to get off the M62 onto the M60. Geoff had already checked where we needed to be on Google ...
... very eventful visit.
2am, sirens going off in our room. I remembered primary school english lessons on ambiguous sentences 'the hotel guest sought safety in their pyjamas". False alarm - someone was having a very steamy shower .... smoking in their room I reckon.
Bye to Carl, Elaine, Lorraine and Amanda - we are now off to Chesterfield. Ruth says that I should buy a couch? WTF
... the river section to Ferrybridge. Here's hoping the red traffic light at the lock has turned to amber before morning!
Reading back at my week it seems our fortunes were not so much mixed as luckless and not a little trying. However, I'm sure we enjoyed the week nonetheless . . . . mmm . . . I hope I'm not turning into one of those boaters who like to tell (and exaggerate) their boating horror stories!
