Was it something I said?

2 Locks, 5 Miles. Now moored at Cholmondeston on the SU Canal Middlewich Branch.

It would appear that the railways and public transport are still and I think will always be a hot topic of conversation and controversy. Thank you to everybody that sent us emails on the subject.

Now the weather forecast for today was dreadful but we had to move so that if tomorrows weather forecast eventuates we can sit it out until Monday. Except for the wind the rain didn't come to much until after we had moored up. However they are predicting over 60mm of rain overnight so we are quite pleased not to be on a river.

Despite the weather and the time of the year the hire boat companies seemed to be doing a brisk trade today as we passed quite a few of their boats mostly at the locks,where else! We called into Venetian Marina to top up the diesel tank because with the drop in overnight temperatures the Mikuni central unit has been working quite hard over the last few days.

1479 locks, 3110 miles, 51 Tunnels, 42 swing bridges and 39 lift bridges since Nov 2006
