July 2nd / 3rd 2011 Farewell Bollington

We left Bollington in glorious sunshine with hardley a breath of wind. We had decided to top up the water in Macclesfield and whilst there we went into the town to obtain supplies. Leaving Macclesfield after lunch we made our way to the moorings just prior to the Bosley top lock where we would moor for the night. Sitting out in the evening sunshine we where entertained by a very brazen mink who was busy catching crayfish.

July 3rd

Once again we set off in glorious weather to tackle the 12 locks at Bosley ,all went well and it took us just over 2 hours to get through Рcome back Ben and Claire!!!! Once through the locks it was a steady cruise to Hall Green lock where we going to moor for the night. Tomorrow we plan to return through the Harecastle Tunnel as we make our way back and hopefully south so we are in a good position when we have to dash home and move house.
