April 29th 2012 Wild outside Cosy inside

The weather forecast was correct, gale force winds and rain. The decision taken yesterday to stay in Adlington was a good one. We only ventured off the boat to collect some groceries and a paper from the small Co-op, and some coal and kindling from the local garage. We have had the fire alight all day so it is really cosy and warm on the boat. Not many boats on the move today although I did feel sorry for the three hire boats that came past. I guess they had to be back at their base so couldn’t stop for the day. We have arranged with the crew of NB Lady Arwen to leave in the morning around 8am and head for the 21 locks that make up the Wigan flight.
