|Leaving Winsford Flash|
On our return to the boat Sue left us, don't blame her really as Muffin whiffed something awful! Muffin then had a shower - rolling in fox poo must be really lovely as he hates the shower. After his shower and towelling off he went berserk in the boat running up and down and leaping up the back steps and off again. Suddenly there was a loud whimper - he must have leapt down the steps and landed badly. He limped off and lay on the sofa and stayed there all evening but was fine by bedtime - walking quite normally again.When we were last in Northwich in October 2011 there was a derelict floating hotel which was a real eyesore. This visit it has been demolished and a new Waitrose store is being built (which will be opened in December this year) along with 58 "extra care" retirement homes from McCathry and Stone, a 4,400 sq ft leisure unit and a 40-berth marina and improved public access to the waterside. The site has previously been not only a hotel but a Regal Cinema.
