Nantwich Basin -> Barbridge Inn 6/7/2019

Engine hours start: 473.6 end: 474.8 = 1.2 hours

Miles:3.5 Locks:0  Lock miles: 3.5

Arrived Fridat pm - To Ebenezers and Enzos for apero and dinner. Alison then back to boat and Andrew to Oddfellows. Andrew recovering from a cold and Alison starting one.

While at Ebenezers, reading a CAMRA magazine, we discovered a beer festival at Bollington on the Macclesfield canal next weekend - much more suitable to aim for than flogging over to Bugsworth.

Saturday morning lazing and listening to heavy rain. Sandwich luch then shopping while car available.

Cast off as skies brightened  muggy weather replaced by fresh northerly breeze. Not much traffic though herons  - one ignored and the other flew at us head on to veer across the canal.

Top mooring on opposite side ready for spot of refreshment. Delicious meal: Andrew steak and bacon burger and proper Eton Mess : Alison chicken fillet with tarrgon cream sauce and lemon posset.
