August 21st 2012 An early start

As the heading suggests it was an early start for us today. It was around 06:45 when we set off from our overnight mooring, we stopped on the service block near Nantwich Marina and topped the water tank and emptied the loo tank. Then we were on our way. We had a lovely cruise down to Christleton; our mooring for tonight.The only excitment we had was when we were waved down by two very polite children telling us that round the corner the canal was blocked by a boat. Sure enough the crew of NB Penny Jenny were trying to move the obstruction – an unmanned boat left on very inadequate mooring pins had come adrift With our help plus the help of a dog walker we managed to get it moored up again but i wonder for how long!!!. I must admit the children from Penny Jenny waving on the tow path did remind me of the railway children. Tomorrow we plan to catch the bus into Chester for some retail therapy.

    Hi! Just had to say that we’ve just come across your blog for 21 August. The 2 polite little girls are our grand daughters and the third was inside Penny Jenny with their Mum. Our son Matthew was helping you to capture the boat! Funnily enough, he told us what had happened and said the girls reminded HIM of the Railway Children too!!

    I meant to forward your blog to Overwater Marina, where PJ is moored but never got around to it. Ah well!
