|Alan at Tixall Wide|
As you can see from the pictures a day that started with glorious sunshine, although it ended in drizzle.
|waiting, Trent and Mersey lock|
It was a day of meeting up with people - spotting some friends from Cowroast heading the same way as us at Tixall (they eventually turned back - it seemed to be a bit of a minor diversion from a major trip out), and then suddenly meeting one of Alan's old school friends at a lock later on. They were heading the other way to us, so we only had the briefest of exchanges.
|Park Gate Lock|
I always think of Park Gate as where we picked up Sickle two and a half years ago.
|At Gailey - from the foot tunnel|
We moored among other boats, just short of Calf Heath.
