Anderton Saturday 27 October 2018

After seeing the forecast last night we left the stove alight all night, good move the grass was white this morning. We set off a little before 10am to arrive at Preston Brook Tunnel for 10-30am. A boat came out of the tunnel dead on 10-30am so he was ether very slow or a little late on entering. It took us just 13 minutes to cruise through slowly.
The sun was pleasant although the air was cold, just before Saltersford tunnel we bumped into Andrew Denny, well not literally but we did stop for a chat.
Arriving at the mouth of the tunnel we had quarter of an hours wait before we could make a passage, then onto Barnton tunnel, this one is not timed, if its clear through you go and it was. By now it was quite sunny and we carried on to the 24 hour moorings by Anderton lift where we found a space about 100 feet long, so no problem getting in and leaving a space for a little one. The boat behind us are also members of the Cutweb Internet Boat Club.
Since we have been moored here the wind has picked up quite a bit, lets hope it stays fine for tonight's fireworks.
