We had a sunny day which started chilly after an over night frost, but it soon warmed up. We had an 8am start through Harecastle tunnel, we were the only boat, so we had it done and dusted in 30 minutes. Whilst Keith took us through the tunnel, I got a wash done and did some hand washing as well, because his cords are to heavy for our washing machine.
A good run down through the bulk of the Cheshire locks, 26 done today. We had company. Linda and Gerald on NB Millie Anne were ahead of us, so we shared all the lock work on the paired locks. It was an absolute joy and it did not feel like 26 locks. Whilst waiting at one lock a lady came and gave me some wool and t-shirts for our blankets and rag rugs. Which was so sweet of her.
We are now moored between Bridge No. 156 and No.157, just west of Wheelock.
