We had decided that we would spend Christmas aboard, even if we could not get out of Aqueduct Marina we would still at least be on our nb. Christmas 2010 we spent on our old nb Tin Lizzie & I came down with a very severe bout of swine flu so I don’t have very good memories of that Christmas holiday time, however I had made up my mind that 2011 was going to be much better.

We had eaten at The Verdin Arms just outside Middlewich during the summer & really enjoyed the food & the hospitality. The Christmas menu looked very inviting so we book in October & mouths were watering from then on.

As you can see it wasn’t a big menu claiming to be anything fantastic but fantastic it was! The Feta cheese, chorizo & apple starter was really unusual & delicious. Two bottles of Rose bubbly were sunk & a great lunch was had by all, as you can see from the photos of “the other alf” & daughter. I was taking the photos trying to get familiar with the new camera I treated myself to!

Back to the marina, light the woodburner another glass, telly & feet up!

So mild for time of year especially compared to last year, but it did start getting a bit chilly after a couple of hours at the helm so it was hot toddy time! Now that’s a whole lot warmer, time for another before we moor up? absolutely!

Another 3 glorious days were enjoyed before the New Year storms set in & we had to go back to Scotland.
