Start of a short trip in first week of Easter break for ADS. AJS present for first day's cruising.
We had spent the previous day at the IWA branch AGM held at Wappenshall Wharf followed by a walk to Berwick Tunnel. We did a car shuffle to leave Alison's at Middlewich ready for the next day.
Sunday started bright and sunny with a chilly wind. By 10:45 the sky had clouded and the wind was brisk - layers piling on.
Spoke to the Findlays on NB Muddy Puddle at their Barbridge mooring.
Bacon butties at 12:30pm just past Aqueduct Marina.
Cold breeze all day and sun increasingly absent. A
s soon as moored up below Middlewich Big Lock, we got the fire lit.
Dinner at the Big Lock pub before AJS returned home having fetched car from street parking on arrival.
