Easter Break...

Our first trip of the year. The weather forecast for the Easter weekend wasn't that good so we were a little bit unsure what to expect.

We managed to get down to the marina on Thursday evening, a little too late to venture out onto the canal so we lit the stove and spent the night in the marina.

Friday we arrived at Marbury Country Park, all three of us love it here, the park and it's surrounding walks are excellent for dog walking and Mr B certainly likes his walkies.

Shared mooring at our favourite spot.

Having great fun exploring the woods and playing ball.

Saturday we moved down to Anderton boat lift turning around at the winding hole and finding a spot just past The Pirate boat, this is another great place for walking. 

Sunday's early morning walk was beautiful in the sunshine, and as usual lots of dog walkers here.

Heading back to the boat.

An old wheelbarrow, looking very heavy and that's before anything goes into it.

Looks like a lot of work has gone into pruning and trimming back the vegetation ready for spring.

Spotted these red mushrooms on our morning walk along the River Weaver.

All snuggly and warm, time for a rest.

Today we headed back to Marbury, stopping off at the services on the way and managing to get stuck, very silly of me I should have known better, obvious signs of land slippage that I missed and the water is apparently lower because of the breach at Middlewich, and because of water getting pumped from the Trent and Mersey up to the Shropshire Union.

Monday's weather wasn't so nice we awoke to rain, that as usual sounded worse than it actually was. Our walk this morning was definitely quieter we only met a couple of doggie's willing to brave the rain.

The rain stopped for us just before lunch and we had a dry and quiet trip to finish off a wonderful weekend.
