Wednesday 7th to Friday 9th June 2017 in Ashwood Marina.
We made an early start on Wednesday morning so that we could catch an early train home. Ashwood Marina was just two hundred yards along the canal, so very quickly we were lined up to reverse into the marina. Our allocated mooring was at the very far end of what was once a long, thin arm off the canal to a coal transhipment depot.
The rise of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's heart in a garden,
Than anywhere else on earth.
M says its reflects her own feelings perfectly.
We arrived back at Ashwood Marina at teatime on Friday having done our civic duty by voting.
After topping up with water, we set off back along the marina between moored boats - this time forwards and without interruption. Eventually, we arrived at the junction with the main line of the canal.
