Frozen In

When we woke up this morning the canal was frozen right across and the ice was about 1cm thick!

It was another lovely sunny day so we walked into Poynton to do some shopping. It's only 1.5 miles and didn't take us very long to get there. There's a large Waitrose in Poynton that has this mural outside.

We gave Waitrose a miss (too expensive) and popped into Asda before going to the Farmer's Arms for lunch.

By the time we got back to the boat the ice had almost gone and then a few boats went past breaking up any remaining ice. It was too sunny to sit indoors so we decided to cast off and carried on to Lyme Park where we're now moored. It's a notorious mooring spot for lurkers but for once there are no other boats here.

It's a lovely spot, this is the view out of our windows tonight, complete with deer.
