Sunday 24th June
We reversed back from Jannock’s mooring the short distance to the winding hole, turned her about and set off back towards Macclesfield. Brenda spotted this ballet dancing scarecrow at a bankside property as we passed.
On through lovely countryside, past Macclesfield and through both swingbridges, the second being worked for us by a hire boat crew heading North – thanks! I spotted this boat with the largest rope bow fender I have ever seen.
By about 13:30 it was getting a bit hot so we moored up in a nice wooded area, under a shady tree and listened to the birdsong coming from both sides of the canal. Just after 3 we set off again down to Bosley top lock where we moored up on the rings ready to pass down the flight tomorrow evening. We have a trip out in the car planned for tomorrow. I went to fetch the car from Higher Poynton and returned back to Jannock at 6pm, just in time for tea.
fter tea, we moved across into the facilities mooring and I did a pumpout whilst Brenda had a shower in the sani station. She then reversed Jannock back across to out recently vacated towpath mooring and I then walked back for a shower as well.
