Summer Autumn Cruise 2011 (4-6)

Saturday September 17th
Littleborough Lower Lock
Day 27

Up early and out with the dogs for their morning constitutional walk. Walked up to the Rochdale Canal summit pound. Met up with the crew of Nb Tacet leaving the summit lock on the Rochdale Side of the Pennines. Had a chat with the lock keeper and returned back to the boat just in time to miss a torrent of rain.

We decided to stay in Littleborough today. So a shopping trip to the co-op was called for. As we came back to the boat loaded up, I looked like a Bedouin Donkey again. Then the rain came down yet again. Had to move the boat along the moorings to get a satellite signal for the television. There is some hidden object in the water that stops us mooring close into the bank. Having to use the gang plank on a lock mooring is different! This seems to be the norm along the Rochdale canal so far!!!
