|A peaceful stretch of the Runcorn Arm|
|Moored at Claymore Boatyard|
Just after the tunnel is one small stop lock and as we arrived there was a boat ahead just entering the lock. I was somewhat amazed when they closed the gated and went through alone as they are still wide locks. When Geoff went up to chat and help them through they said they had been told it was not wide enough for 2 narrow boats???? Looked wide enough to me.
The weather today has been so much better than of late, in fact if I could have been bothered to change it was shorts weather again.....has summer returned??
Moored in a nice open spot with a few other boats for a change........we hope to go down the Anderton Lift tomorrow if all goes well
Total distance:5.78 miles
Average speed:0.72 mph (0.85 lock/mph)
