April showers

Yesterday's weather was typical April showers and we got wet a couple of times.  We carried on down Grindley Brook locks to moor on the visitor moorings and paid a visit to the Horse and Jockey pub which had been recommended on a couple of other blogs.  The beer was good and the menu interesting but we ate on the boat as we've planned on eating at the Cotton Arms in Wrenbury on Saturday.

Today we've had heavy rain, hail and thunder.... oh and brilliant sunshine as well.
At Quoisley Lock there was a stall selling hen's and guinea fowl eggs. I've never seen guinea fowl eggs for sale before. They're smaller than hens eggs but larger than quails eggs.

Beside Marbury Lock there were hens eggs and an assortment of jams and marmalades for sale.

When we got to the Anglo Welsh hire base at Wrenbury Mill we called in to pick up some diesel. Our gauge is showing absolutely empty (although we know we still have enough for a couple more days) but  unfortunately for us they didn't have any.  They're waiting for a delivery, so until that arrives we're going no further.

My Mum's coming to visit tomorrow. She's disabled but we've managed to moor right beside the path to the caravan park which will mean she's got easy access to the boat.
