It was a lovely morning, Diana took a walk to town while I did a couple of jobs around the boat, we finally set off at mid day. Big Lock was with us, it just needed topping up and just as I entered a boat came round the corner behind us so I pulled across in the lock to let her in beside us.
On to Wincham Wharf with all their moored boat and round the bend to the winding hole by another chemical works. As we winded we were treated to a display of aerial acrobatics by this Kestrel, a few moments later he dived across to the other side of the canal to pounce on something before flying off with it in its talons. I wasn’t quick enough to catch that.
From here we returned to our marina arriving just as the sun was going down.
Our total for the trip 123 miles 52 locks in 57¼ hours
