Bridge 28, Middlewich -> Rode Heath 8/7/2019

Engine hours start: 479.6 end: 486.7 = 7.1 hours

Miles:9 Locks:20  Lock miles:29

Early start (07:30) First couple of hours pretty quiet, a bit more traffic come 09:30 when we were 6 locks done and ready for a coffee. Andrew's back went first thing - in pain all day.

Traffic not nearly as heavy as the weekend but a number of convenient crossing between locks. Waether mostly sunny but after lunch cloudier and a bit steamy.

Wonderful display from house martin diving around us - extraordinary aerobatics.

Got the very last spot on rings at Rode Heath so felt vidicated for our early start!

A read and siesta before meal at the Broughton Arms - excellent qulaity and value (except not a proper New York style baked cheesebake as advertised).

Back to boat 19:45 - Andrew's back really struggling...
