Spring Cruise - Day Eight

Not much cruising today -- just 200 yards to a more convenient spot for loading the car. Then we headed north to Chester (crossing several canals on the way, including the GU, the Birmingham and Fazeley, the Staffs and Worcs, the Shroppie, and the Llangollen). The purpose of heading in the opposite direction from home was to visit one-day-old Rachel May. And her parents, of course.

The one hour visiting time wasn't really enough, but it was well worth all the extra hours of travelling. On the journey home we added several more canal crossings to our list, including the Stratford, the Oxford, and the K & A.

Yet another reason to move up North Adam!

Rachel May - nice name for a narrowboat in her honour :-)
