Summer/Autumn Cruise (Week 5)

Summer/Autumn Cruise 2011 (Week 5)

Monday September 19th
Chelburn Bridge Wharf
Day 29
Up early and out with the dogs for a walk. Met two boats coming across the summit pound. Nb Penny Royal and Nb York (shire cruises) both heading for Littleborough moorings. Had a chat with both crews who were working down the locks as a pair. Later in the morning a third boat came past, Nb “Oo da thow't it” heading towards Littleborough.

The weather has been overcast with frequent showers. So we decided to sit out the rain until tomorrow. Oops, I have now discovered that we need a pump-out and the nearest point is two days and 22 locks away. The local canal side pubs will be getting a couple of drop in visitors at their convenience.

Today has been a day for reading and catching up on mucking out the boat. I prefer the reading to doing the mucking out! This is a very quiet section of canal with few walkers or bike riders passing by. Internet connectivity is very hit and miss at the moment. I need to check our email in box as soon as possible. Plus I have a couple of emails to go out.
