We left Whitchurch last Monday with extra crew Elliot was signed on as a deck hand, with the extra help we made good time through the locks and made Nantwich in plenty of time for the weekend. Nantwich is a great little place we found a Museum were Elliot spent a couple of hours helping to make a Mural about canal life. the town itself is lovely with plenty of shops and very quaint buildings. Friday Julie John Rach and Beth came, great day with paddling in the river, Ice creams, but they had to depart and take our extra crew home we will miss him he is a good pair of hands and a good shot but we are not to mention that.
Sat Morning we were hailed from a passing boat "Perfect Day" it was Mike and Val Mike when I was a land lubber Mike was my next door but one neighbour for over 20 years it was really great to see him and Val He was always a great bloke to have around, I am sure we will be seeing a lot of Mike in the future. Sat afternoon Lorrain Thomas and Mat arrived again we had a fantastic weekend glorious weather walks in the park, picnics on the green, what could be nicer than chatting with old friends and family over a few beers at the side of your boats watching the sun go down. I hope that has made you envious it was meant to?
