Home Moorings Tuesday 18 April 2017

We woke to a cracking morning, how does the weather know when we are going home?

Quite a few boats about, including one just after I pulled the first pin out at 9-30 AM.

We had just set off when this Cormorant popped up with a fish in his beak, he then proceeded to catch 3 more.DSCF7641

The down side of this canal is that it right on the approach flight line for Manchester Airport so from about 6-30 AM until 11 PM there is a plane going over every few minutes, but at least they stop over night.DSCF7643

It was only just under a mile to our mooring and we were there by 10 AM. Its quite surprising the progress they have made at the marina over the last 3 weeks, a new car park has appeared and also electricity bollards down the length of another pontoon.

This trip we have done 152 locks and 170 Miles  in 21 daysmap trip
