At 4.45 we did a quick self pump-out and headed off into the glorious sunshine.
Roger worked the lift bridge
and I drove
and we celebrated with pints of Speckled Hen and Lancaster Black. You can keep your champagne, I'd much rather have a beer...........
The wildlife was out in abundance to watch us leave Duckinfield
I hate these feral pigeons, dirty disease ridden vermin.............now wood pigeon is a different matter all together, especially lightly pan fried in a salad........YUM !!
We eventually moored up for the night just after 7.30. We're at Hyde Bank, ready to go up Marple locks in the morning. The sheep are bleating, the trains are whizzing past and the electricity pylons are buzzing..........it's sheer heaven!
