Can't get better than this.

Buster climbed into our bed around 6:30 for a warm, he stayed there until 8:30 when we went for his walk, I noticed a sign for Dairy House Meadow last night so we shall see were that goes,
Our view from the side hatch this morning.

A bench in the shape of a newt, I think.

The sunshine this morning was beautiful and the walk was lovely. This spot is definitely going on our favourite places to moor. Right on the flight path for Manchester Airport a definite yes for plane spotter Corinne. 
Buster loves his time on the boat.

Anderton CRT services is only around the corner so we stopped to make use of them, a few hundred yards further down and we moored just before the boat lift, it was past Busters walkie time so we set off for a walk down to the River Weaver, he met some new Lurcher doggy friends Woody and Finn who we joined on their walk until leaving them to take a different path along the river for a photo of the lift. 

Floating traders had set up their stalls just along from us, Corinne spotted an English Bull Tiller pin and she had to have it.

Back to the boat for a spot of lunch before setting off around 14:00. We are moored at Dutton tonight, site of the breach that happened here a few years ago. We passed through two tunnels today, Barnton 1722ft long and then Saltersford 1207ft long, and nice and wide, but still only enough for one boat, timed entries.

House between the tunnels.

Waiting for our passage time to enter Barnton.
