Back to Boothstown

We came back through Wigan yesterday. The pounds were very low but this time it was due to a broken paddle on one of the locks letting water flow through, rather than vandalism, and we didn’t have any delays.

We moored last night beside Scotsman’s Flash in the same spot as 3 weeks ago and then this morning we set of fairly early (for us) and arrived back at Boothstown Marina just in time to watch the Grand Prix Qualifying.  We haven’t booked into the marina as there's only one other boat here outside the pub. The Probation Service boat has gone so we won’t have the problem of them running their engine from 8am till 11pm. We aim to be in Manchester for next weekend but for the next few days we have things to do and friends to see.
