Saturday 29 November

After a very lazy start we set off about 11.45, having shopped first for our favourite Saturday newspaper. We made really good progress. I was steering and Storm was doing the locks and after two hours we’d done 1 mile and 7 locks (generally the hourly rate rule of thumb is to add the locks and miles together and divide by 4).

The beautiful Cheshire Autumnal countryside still looked lovely, despite the mist.  Max enjoyed a good run too.

The locks continued to be set in our favour and we turned off the Trent & Mersey Canal at Hardings Wood onto the Macclesfield Canal and we headed north for about a mile and half before mooring up just north of Scholar Green on an established mooring site with rings.

The promised sunshine didn’t materialise today and the misty conditions didn’t lift so we settled down for the afternoon to read the papers and keep warm by the stove.
