We set off into Middlewich for a shop at Tescos to give us some provisions to cover us for the next few days, on arriving we came across Ubique so we pulled over and I had a quick chat with Chris but as he was working on his engine which is still giving him trouble with an oil leak, I left him to it and we headed off to do our shop.
After some lunch we headed off only to discover that there was an almighty queue waiting to go through the locks, I was in two minds as to whether to reverse back to our moorings or continue on, as it was we moved on albeit very slowly as the queue was cumulative in that it went on lock after lock even when we passed the middlewich junction. We didn’t moor up until 7:30 which is an extremely long day for us.
Going south of Middlewich I did have the pleasure of witnessing a swallow feeding her young as we entered the lock and managed to get a picture of the fledglings calmering for food as I entered the lock.
Today we did 5.72 Miles and 9 Locks
Statistics so far:-
1591.10 Miles, 901 Locks, 108 Swing Bridges, 66 Lift Bridges, 20 Tunnels
