We had to leave Maesbury Marsh this morning, which was sad as I had really liked it there – but all good things have to come to an end! Still we were looking forward to our evening with anticipation!
The pound between Aston bottom lock and Aston middle lock was very low and we struggled to get along. I left C&RT a tweet on Twitter and they replied saying that they had passed the problem on to their local office – the wonders of social media!
Muffin decided that he would investigate the bywash at the middle lock as it was not in water. He jumped down and skidded as it was rather slimy. He thought it was great fun but he was a disgusting colour when he came back! I’m not sure that an apricot coloured dog with, it has to be said, rather short legs is not the cleverest dog to have on the canals! We love him all the same J
It was a lovely afternoon and I had done two loads of washing and managed to get it all dry – a bonus after all the wet weather we have had. Just towels and a duvet cover to go now – oh and I need to change our bed!
I had cooked a chicken chasseur as we went along this morning so just had the starter (prawn cocktail) and pudding (Eton mess) to do. Maybe a bit old fashioned but nice and easy!
We had a lovely evening with Julie and Jeff starting with sparkling wine on the picnic tables on the grassy area – unbelievable after last week. In fact we have only sat outside twice since we set off and both times with Julie and Jeff! We must meet up with them more often!
