After the Grand Prix yesterday we carried on for about an hour to moor just past Calveley.  These 48 hour moorings are available to rent from BW as designated winter moorings but they’re not very nice. The towpath is a quagmire and full of dog poo and it’s about 500 yards to the nearest water and pump-out which would be too far if we got iced in.

the view's not bad, field full of cows

field full of Alpacas

Today we took the car to Tattenhall Marina and arranged to leave the boat there for a week while we go to stay with our daughter.  They were very welcoming and didn’t mind us leaving the car there until we arrive with the boat later this week. In fact, the guy in the office was so friendly he took us via a short-cut out the back of the marina to the nearest bus stop, which saved us a mile walk to the bus stop in the village. It took us 2 hours to get back as we had to get a bus into Chester and then another one back to Calveley but at least we got to see some of the pretty local villages on the route home.

Chico isn't too impressed with these early dark evenings. He objects to having the light on over his bed so has started pulling his blanket over his eyes so he can get to sleep!
