Chilling Out! 26th May

We have progressed well and will move onto our summer destination for the boat at PB Mechanical tomorrow.
Today was a day to chill, clear the rubbish at the BW yard, restock the larder with a Tesco down the hill (bus back!) and have a gentle day.
I walked back down the locks to see how much, or in fact, no water was going down and not surprisingly, a pair of boats were caught on the cill entering a lock.

Our mooring spot high on the embankment was delightful with full sun and a strong warm breeze.

The Crown Hotel just down from the bridge had a couple of different real ales, so I sampled a couple! This photo shows the food for life - the near building is the Crown, then the Baptist Church and the Hovis Factory behind.
It was a great day and a lovely evening as the sun set over the land of Wigan.
