Audlem Historic Boats Festival...

The annual trip down to see the historic narrowboats at Audlem has became a regular occurrence for us. You never know maybe next year we might even make the trip there by boat. 

We arrived just after eleven and it was still fairly quiet, by time we'd done the usual trek up the flight of locks and then back down and on to the old working boats things we're busying up.  The weather was ok not too hot and the breeze kept us cool.

It was Corinne's birthday yesterday and she wanted to go to the Shroppie Fly for a meal, as we do every year. The choice of menu today wasn't great and it turns out neither was the food, we couldn't recommend here for eating which is a shame because it used to be good.   
Walked on into the village and found a shop that sold fudge and ice cream then made our way back to the boats for a sit down and to give Charlie a rest, and us. We had just finished the ice creams when the heavens opened, luckily the car was close by for us to take shelter.
