Collecting supplies

Kidderminster trip, day 1

Having left the boat yard we are now on our way with a purposeful destination in mind. We are heading south to meet friends in Kidderminster.

First we had to stop in Bollington to pick up some woodwork from Ric at Eyedesigns, Ric made our quirky coffee table and the beautiful new oak conservatory table that we had fitted last week.

We then cruised on through Macclesfield and stopped off at M&S to replace Eric’s holey trousers, and to replace the mooring chain that I think I left on the Peak Forest canal on Tuesday. Plus a few other bits and bobs from the chandlery.

although we didn’t do a lot of mileage we were on the go all day and as it had started to pour with rain we moored up at Gurnnets Aquaduct.

Cruising time-3 hours,

Distance-7 miles,

Average speed 2.3mph
