Time to take the shopping trolley and visit the Coop near the canal. In the recreation ground behind The Shroppie Fly they were getting ready for a party in the park event on Saturday. We would probably have heard the music from the canal side moorings but the 10.30 pm Fireworks Display meant a freaked out dog if we stayed put.
Saturday morning and sunshine was good with the locks to taking us to moor at Coxbank if there was room. Progress was very slow with boats going up but nothing coming down until a few locks from Coxbank. It got even slower when a single handed bloke who'd stopped for a tea break joined the ascent of the flight. Other boaters helped him but it was still slow as he was new to boating. In all it took three and a half hours to do eleven locks.
We're currently moored at Coxbank as there was a space......relaxing! It's nice and breezy too so the boat is keeping nice and cool.
