When you’re boating you get some absolutely incredible days but, to be frank, you also get some that are just a bit shit. Today’s trip up the Bosley Locks to the Gurnett Aqueduct just outside Macclesfield veered between the two extremes. It was cold, windy and snowy which made for some incredible scenery.
But it also made for some difficult boating with the wind catching the boat and pinning it to the bank and ice around the locks making working them quite treacherous.
It was good to have Ray and Diane to help out and offer moral support.
We were glad to arrive at our destination. We were also glad to get to the King’s Head at Gurnett for a couple of drinks, a lovely fire and some good jazz.
