Bosley Top of the locks

Well last night it rained again and this morning, we didn’t set off until about 2pm and no one had been passed. The rain stopped about 2 pm as forecast and the wind started picking up. Shortly before the locks we met the Ginger hire boat that had passed us yesterday, they must have winded at the bottom lock. There was no one waiting at the bottom to go up, just a couple of boats on the very exposed visitor moorings. A couple of the locks were with us but the rest we had to turn. As Diana walked past a fisherman he was just landing a 10” pike. The weather stayed dry and as we left lock No.2 we could see a boat had just left lock one, so it was nearly with us. Diana dumped the rubbish at the top lock and we only carried on just past the long term mooring to moor for the night. As soon as we stepped ashore it started raining and hailing, only stopping when we went inside. Still we didn’t  get as wet as we expected to get today.
