Easter trip to Chester (Saturday 26/3/2016)

Engine reading at end of day: 155.9hr Miles:5 Locks:5
Alison arrived 15:15, set off straight-away. Straightforward cruise despite foul weather and strong winds.

Had the canal pretty much to ourselves. Bunbury staircase locks set for us! All others not...

Arrived at Shady Oak around sunset 18:30. New management have spruced up the interior. Sizeable helpings of standard pub grub - not full menu, obviously keeping a tight grip on wastage!

Towpath very slippery after the day's rain. Skipper slipped and twisted ankle, crew very sorry about charging ahead...
