Posts Tagged ‘Easter Monday’

Monday 9th April 2012 ( Easter Monday)

Macclesfield Canal, Hardings Wood Junction to Nowhere!

Easter Monday & the weather forecast was awful, we had no reason to rise early as we were not going anywhere today due to re-occurring drive plate problems & we needed our second replacement within a year but due to it being Easter Monday no supplier were open, so we had to stay put until tomorrow. We looked out of the window around 9am & this is what we saw

The rain lasted until 4pm, but we decided to get some DIY tasks done to make That’s D’riculous more comfortable when we embark on liveaboard next year. So I set Lochaber to work

I managed to find a tilting bed desk that I can use for a book or my ipad during the long dark winter months cosied up in bed, but as with everything on a narrowboat storage & accessibility is paramount, as I folded flat we decided that storage near the bed on a vacant piece of wall space was the best option.

Perfect, job done, next! a couple of pictures to be hung, lochaber has had enough now & the rain has eased so time for a walk with the dog.

Now folks I don’t want to come across as a moaner or a killjoy but, on the right is what we do on the left is what everyone else seems to leave behind on this stretch of towpath! If you want the pleasure of a dog….PICK IT UP!

Apart from the offending dog pooh at regular intervals along the towpath, it was also very muddy due to the amount of rain that had been falling all day, but we had a nice walk up to Hall Green stop lock

Then past a beautiful house complete with large weeping willow & own Narrowboat, not envious at all, really.

We carried on as far as the swing bridge (90) & met a local who told us that a badger set had been spotted on the opposite bank & that the rabbit population was coming back in this area after a heavy dose of “mixi”.

Easter Monday 0 miles, o hours, 1 lock by foot!
