As expected the New year started of rather damp,after seeing the New Year in twice last night, BBC at midnight and ITV+1 a hour later, added to the rain we made a very late start, not getting away until 11-15 am. The weather was quite miserable with cold rain coming across on a northerly breeze.
As we passed through Wrenbury we could see that there was a vintage car rally going on in the car park of The Dusty Miller, a pub that stands both on the tow path and the road right beside the lift bridge, I don’t know if it was connected with the event but the caravan site just across the road form the pub also looked quite full, such a shame the weather was so miserable, but there were still a lot of people wandering round.
We stopped for lunch rather than eating on the move and when we had finished the rain had stopped, looking at our weather station we could see how the pressure had plummeted in the early hours of the morning but was now on the rise again.
We met 3 boats this afternoon, 1 hire, 1 share and one private. The sky was blue with wispy clouds and the sun was doing its best to wish us Happy New Year. We carried on to just below bridge 4 to moor for the night on the visitor moorings, just as we were tying up the sun was sliding down below the horizon for the night, lets hope its back tomorrow.
