The Game is afoot

Hi Everyone

Well we are off We left Fettlers Wharf yesterday at Sparrow fart it was a cold and very dismal morning but we had hope in our heart and fresh air in our lungs
All was going very well until we arrived at lock 6 only to find that there was no water in the pound we then had to manage all the way to top lock coping by letting as much water down as we could
Only to be told on reaching top lock by a CRT person that it had been a bad winter for water and things were getting very dry WELL I have no idea what planet he was sent from but it wasn't one that contained Lancashire
Undeterred we all pressed on and made our first night stop at the Ship Inn just through Halsall what a nice pint of Boater's Bitter they do excellent made for a good nights sleep. Up at the crack again this morning as we wanted to be at bridge nine just outside Aintree by 13.00 as this is where the c
CRT guys take over for the assisted passage. This time we were lucky as two boats where on the outward journey so they allowed us to go through and moor on the secure moorings in Litherland
we leave here tomorrow to pick up Silvia and Alan and take them through which I can only describe as a wonderful experience. More about that tomorrow

God Bless All
Canal Turn Aintree

This duck must have been sired by every Drake on the canal her Brood was a magnificent 57 variety pack
