April 14th 2012 Back on the Trent and Mersey

Another frost greeted us this morning but the boat remains lovely and warm.  It was just after 10am when we set off and were soon at our first lock of the day.  A boat was coming up so that helped make the passage nice and easy. The sun was shining but there was a stiff chilly breeze. There were not that many boats on the move, although just after lunch we did meet up with a boat full of pirates coming in the opposite direction. They seemed very friendly (stag weekend).  As we passed they managed to run aground so we made good our escape!!!! Arriving in Middlewich we navigated the 5 locks; the third of which leads onto the Trent and Mersey.  So we are now back on the Trent and Mersey canal and we have moored for the night on visitor moorings in Middlewich.

Today 9 miles   7 locks
