In the land of Orange water.

We had a lovely peaceful night at Paddys Wood.

We left the mooring at 9 am and headed for the first of the 23 locks we would do today.

I love these locks because with them being doubles you can go up whilst someone else is either going the same way or in the other direction.

We had a good run up through the Cheshire locks, 23 of them and 7½ miles in 5½ hours, with lots of boats coming down, setting the locks ready for us, and the sun was shining too!

The motorway at Hassell Green was very busy and they all seemed to be going way to fast for my liking.

With lots of boats coming down the locks we played boat balet with a few.

We decided to moor at Red Bull, and were fortunate that a hire boat pulled off the mooring allowing us to pull in. We were thinking there may not be any moorings further up the locks, so took this one for the night.
