Thursday 25th August, 2016 in Chester.
A dull, grey sort of day. As we were moored at Egg Bridge, we did have eggs for breakfast!
We set off mid morning and at the first lock met with a small crisis. M had set the lock with R's help and, when he went back to MM to sail her into the lock, it appeared that the engine had stopped.
We loved this pretty old lock-keeper's cottage at Tarvin, which was very well looked after.
Shortly after R sat down with his coffee, the Manageress came up and presented him with a bag of coffee beans with her compliments! What brilliant customer service!
A splendid Victorian clock tower is mounted over the gate that spans the main pedestrianised road through the centre of the city.
Today: 4 miles, 5 locks and 2.4 hours.
Trip: 274 miles, 205 locks and 203.4 hours.
