Bridgewater Marina, Boothstown, Bridgewater Canal
After a slightly noisy start to the night - the boat behind started running the engine at 8.30pm and there was loud music coming from somewhere, we had a good night's sleep. We were up and away by 0745 and off to Worlsley.
The entrance to the Barton Swing Bridge. I see Peel Holdings have abandoned the bridge keepers, cottages.
The view west, from the bridge showing the road bridge and the M6 road bridge in the distance.
A lighthouse to guide you on your way...
We moored up at a very busy Worsley waterfront. The Sale Boat Club were out in force. And at 1130 we were invaded by family. 11 of us sat down to a disappointing lunch in the Bridgewater Hotel and then David took some of them on a quick cruise along the canal (making them walk back!)
We said goodbye to the family and went on to the marina at Boothstown and purchased a couple of nights with electricity, and asked for someone to check out the electrics as something is not quite right. The washing machine has been going mad ever since.
More waterways cards. This picture I matted onto silver, green and red card.
Then I used an edge trimmer to make a card ribbon and wrapped some green ribbon around the centre of it and then added the green gems.
