Harecastle Tunnel And Beyond

Waiting in the queue for Harecastle Tunnel

The light at the end of the tunnel!
Today I took Ben for a walk around Longport Lake before we set off to cruise to the portal of Harecastle Tunnel where we moored next to the Q here sign. We had an hour to wait so we made a cup  of tea and sat outside watching the boats queueing up behind us. Going through took about forty minutes and we chatted as the water dripped on us and we felt quite cold.We remembered the film called journey to the centre of the earth! Soon we could see the light at the end of the tunnel  and came out in that familiar rusty brown coloured water.

After working through some locks we moored up  and went to Tesco in Kidsgrove before continuing down the locks to Red Bull Services.We filled up with water before continuing down the locks to moor at Church Lawton where Eric will stay for a couple of days while I go and see my dad....it's Fathers Day this weekend.
