Had an awful journey up the M5 and M6, heavy rain all the way, started out at 04:40 and arrived at around 08:00. Couldn't do much more than 60 in most places due to spray and visibility, and then there were 50 mph limits in various places and 30 mph through Brum.
We unloaded the car and loaded the boat and went through the usual checks and got ourselves under way.
Through Minshull Lock, Cholmondeston Lock and ended up moored outside the Barbridge Inn where we met a couple who were interested in purchasing a share. We showed them around, explained the detail, and I think they went away with their heads full of info to mull over.
What's next? Into the pub of course, and we started with a curried parsnip soup followed by a Butchers Platter and very nice it was too.
Later, back in TQ, we crashed...
|Nice and warmy.|
