I Hate Goodbyes!

0 locks, 3 miles, Now moored at Nantwich

This morning we headed into Nantwich arriving about 10am, filling up with water at the facilities and then moving onto the 48 hour moorings by the aqueduct.

After an early lunch it was time to walk Brent to the railway station and us catch a bus to Leighton Hospital. He had plenty of time and was to meet up with a friend and his sister Tracey for a drink before leaving tomorrow. It was great having him with us for a week and a complete surprise. He had been planning this for nearly a year and we had no idea. A lot of planning went into it but nobody was more surprised than he was when he found us so easy. I suppose it was one chance in thousands that we would be the first boat he saw when getting off the train in Ellesmere Port. he is flying to Los Angeles and then on to Vegas before heading back to Wellington next week.

1507 locks, 3173½ miles, 51 Tunnels, 42 swing bridges and 39 lift bridges since Nov 2006
