(Boat Sickle - posted by Alan)
|No delays at "Minshull Lock" this time.|
However no such problems today - Minshull lock was the first, and we worked straight through it. We continued to bounce or slide through many of the bridge holes though, (they are shallow!), and suffered some hold ups after an initially approaching boat did a U-turn ahead of us, and then travelled ahead of us somewhat slower than Sickle likes to go. However before long we had turned off the arm, and were heading South down the "Shroppie" main line, (I'll let Cath tell you how the turn went, if she wants to, otherwise we'll not mention it!).
|Nor any delays at Hack Green|

|Tame sheep at lock-side.|
|I wouldn't mind living where we moored up!|
