Off we go again

It hardly needs saying, but we had another excellent night in the Boar's Head last night with Ian and Sharon. Turning up at half six, we had no trouble getting a table, but the pies were beginning to run short. There was only one portion of steak and kidney, and no cheese and onion at all. Since they are baked fresh each day, it's the price you pay.

We ended the evening on Bunnies Warren. Thanks, Ian and Sharon, it was great.

The Webasto continues to behave itself, so at nine this morning we nipped into the yard, had a chat with Peter and said our goodbyes once more. Peter will arrange for a replacement timer to be posted to us; in the meantime, we'll go on using the basic one which came as standard with the installation kit. After swapping them over, when we get back to Mercia, I'll hang on to the basic one as a backup.

Boating in rather grim conditions, damp and chilly, we've come on to Lyme Green. Sheila ran a washload as we went and after lunch we walked up to the Coöp for a few bits and pieces.

Tomorrow, the plan is to go down Bosley and on to Congleton Aqueduct. We'll make a more leisurely trip of it going back; we expect to get back to Mercia a week on Saturday.

Chilly here too. A couple of volunteer lock keepers at a local well-known lock got a bit cold and wet in between the sunny spells!
