(Boats Chalice then Sickle - posted by Alan)Retrospective post for Monday 28th July.
|Progressing up the thick of Audlem locks with Sickle.|
We, on the other hand, needed to move stuff between the two boats, making "Sickle" suitable to be our home for the next few days, and ensuring we travelled with as little as possible, but not leaving anything vital on "Chalice". Because Michael had hi-jacked our bedroom, (we had slept on "Sickle" whilst he was with us), we all falling over each other trying to get sorted. I'd better not say too much, but I am seldom at my best at times like this!
|Sickle sets off without me - however the skill is not letting her leave without me!|
|Sickle didn't leave without me, and is halted waiting for the next lock.|
|After 15 locks at Audlem, you qickly reach 5 more at adderley.|
