Since I only had half a day at the tiller yesterday, it’s my turn again. For a trip that takes us an hour and 45 minutes. C&RT managed to fill the canal between Poolstock Lock 2 and the second lock in Wigan, and they want us to move to Wigan and moor at the C&RT office, for safety reasons. We still can’t go any further, filling up the rest of the canal till Pagefield Lock takes a lot of water and a lot of time.

Time for us to go to the supermarket, getting rid of galley waste in all the litter bins we come across. And since we’re at a C&RT office we also manage to get our licence for next year. Another job off the list. In the evening it’s Franco’s again, which is now in walking distance.
