I shall remember today as the time I heard the bagpipes being played alongside the canal and the day I found a lost teddy and the day that John and Mo passed us in Josephine. Such exciting lives we lead. We moored early afternoon in yet another beautiful spot and discovered a business park just minutes away along a short path from the canal. Bryan popped in to Homebase and managed to buy a few of the screws/bolts that we need for the mushrooms on the roof. We managed to have a go at a second mushroom that is leaking. Hopefully they will both prove to be watertight when the next rain falls.
Wednesday 13th Lyme Green
We did plan to go to Gurnett today as it is a place we wanted to stay when we were last here a couple of years ago
We have had some rain today and both mushrooms appeared to be watertight. Hurrah!
Set off for Swettenham boat yard this morning. When we arrived we couldn't see an obvious visitor mooring where we could stop and ask where we were to berth but we did see an empty pontoon so pulled into it. The man in charge when he was passing to help someone else out said, you seem to be OK there. So, here we are. Very laid back here it seems. We secured the boat and plugged her into the mains then went into town for a bit of shopping. Bryan called in at the station and collected his pre paid tickets for Scotland tomorrow. I found a workshop jewellers and found out that they could mend my necklace chain while I waited
