We moored in the wrong place last night, although it was quite safe but it was rather dark and dismal as we lost the sun too early. It was our own fault as we had stopped short of the bridge we were aiming for and where the recommended moorings were.
Our departure this morning was delayed by the rain.....more mutterings from Geoff.....however we eventually set off just before 11. Soon after our mooring we passed a fairly large housing estate with some strangely designed houses.....
|One block had created a fantastic mural...this is exactly the same design houses as in the previous picture|
|The trip was mostly rural until the far end|
|The end of the line. We didn't fancy mooring here so turned and a little way back there are convenient mooring rings by the Brindley Centre close to a path leading to the town centre.|
|Bridge at Runcorn spanning the Manchester Ship Canal and the river Mersey|
|Bridgewater Motor Boat club that has a sign saying they welcome visiting boats overnight.|
|A pleasant looking small arm that looked a good permanent mooring spot|
