We have left Liverpool and as usual on such occasions we had mixed feelings, sad to leave and glad to get away. We are moored up near the Running houses which we think is in Lydiate.
Having been told when we came down to Liverpool that we would have to be at the first lock this morning at 08:30 we set off at 08:10 only to discover that the sea lock between Albert Dock and Canning dock was closed and we ended up waiting until 09:30 when it was opened after we rang the emergency operations number. Everyone including the BW chap who told us it would be 08:30 said where did we get that time from it is always 09:30, what about last Saturday we said, oh yes it was 08:30 last Saturday. Anyway we didn’t mind hanging around in Albert dock in the beautiful morning sunshine, it wasn’t so good that we had to come out of Liverpool in the pouring rain, where is this so cold heat wave?
Today we did 15.37 Miles, 6 Locks and 7 Swing bridges.
Statistics so far:-
1508.99 Miles, 883 Locks, 102 Swing Bridges, 65 Lift Bridges, 17 Tunnels
