|Moored at Coxbank, SUC|
Soon after we arrived and moored just off the visitor moorings at Coxbank, the boat in front of us left so we were able to move up a boat length. This meant we could get a satellite signal for our weekend stop. We wanted a few days to get a few jobs done on the boat. First of all Eric wanted to polish the one side with a special Craftmaster polish which acts rather like Tcut and restores the original paint colour and I needed to clean the well deck.
After a pleasant Saturday starting with a walk down the locks into Audlem with Eric and Ben the dog we had a lovely if rather hot day. I was busy making a new fly screen for the side hatch and Eric was polishing the boat. I didn't get around to cleaning the well deck but perhaps it'll get done today. The side of the boat certainly looks so much better after Eric's hard work.
We had a beautiful sunset last night and Eric took some photographs.
I have been very itchy the last few days as a mosquito or two must have been in the boat overnight and had a feast on me, leaving a dozen bites while I was asleep. So last night before we went to bed we made sure no little pests were onboard. They didn't get me last night!
