Sunday 8 February

Tomorrow we plan to leave Chester as the locks have been repaired and re-opened at 5pm on Friday as scheduled.

We spent today with Laura, Marc & Summer and this evening we treated us all to a meal out to say a huge “thank you” to them.   It is hard saying ‘cheerio’ as it has been really nice spending some quality time with them all.

Tomorrow we plan to head towards Nantwich to try to get an appointment with an independent boat electrician there who has specialist battery knowledge. After five years of regular use, we think our bank of seven batteries is nearing the end of its life and need replacing.
