Twelve Locks To Audlem

Audlem Mill

Moored by Audlem Mill
The Shroppie Fly

We stayed put yesterday at Adderley due to the rain but it turned into a lovely sunny day so Eric gave the boat some TLC with sanding and priming in the bow area. The well deck has been sanded, rust treated, primer and undercoated but the top coats haven't been done yet.
Ben and I had a walk in the rain but we didn't go far as he decided he wanted to go back to the boat and turned around.

Today we did cruised to the top of the Audlem flight and down the locks we went with Ben  walking with me. It took us 2 hours to do 12 locks even though we had to turn a couple of locks with no boats in sight coming up. We were in luck with room for us next to Audlem Mill, not the quietest of places but I am so knackered  I didn't care. I can also pop in and get the Christmas cards rather than get them online from IWA.

We need some fresh food from the Coop as it's so close to the boat. The next place for shopping is Nantwich and it's a fair walk back from  Morrison's  with shopping.  Lazy tea tonight.....there's a lovely fish and chip shop and it should be open today.
