We cruised down to Dutton lock and then on downstream. We passed Devil's Garden and went down to the Frodsham Arm where we turned round. The lock keeper at Dutton lock had said that we should be able to go down the arm but that farmers had blocked it off. In fact there was an old BW sign there as well, whether or not the farmers had put it there we will never know.

I was going to make a chicken dish for supper but the weather was so fantastic that we had an impromptu barbecue. We had bought a pan which looks like a wok with holes in it but is in fact for barbecuing vegetables so we had a go. I marinated some mushrooms, peppers and cauliflower though I wouldn't bother with the cauli again as it was pretty raw and would probably need to be done on its own but the mushrooms and peppers were lovely.

Needless to say we had a bottle of wine with our BBQ and Muffin wanted his share too! The saying "like father like son" springs to mind!
