The Middlewich Branch of the Shropshire Union is almost entirely lined with piling and there are numerous mooring areas. So why moor on the end of the lock landing?
And, the obligatory plastic bag full of dock sh**. What is the metality of someone who takes the trouble to scoop it up, but then leaves the bag lying around. At least if it is out in the open it can decompose.
Just one lock and a couple of hours cruising today. Noticed horse chestnut and sycamore trees in leaf, there are lots of cowslips and wood anenomies around. Though the weather has turned a bit cold again, but there was some sun around lunchtime. David ate his mussels on the front deck.
We are booked for the Liverpool Link on 30th April. We got this message today:

Simple card using a photograph of a pony. I matted it onto silver, orange, white and green card and then fixed it to the front of a white card blank. The ribbon was tied in a knot and stuck across the front with double sided.
