|Bloody Murphy - We were awoken around 5.30am (alarms set for 6.30) by rainfall - knowing we had to have the roof down for the full journey to Litherland, and after the lovely sunny day of 23º yesterday, we were just a bit cranky.
We set off with our wet weather gear on in a light rain.
I had been fretting about going through the very low bridge again, hoping the water level hadn't risen any or we wouldn't get underneath it.
2 narrow boats went through before us as we knew we'd be fairly slow. But the bridge fairies were being kind to us and the level was down about 4 inches from when we went down, and we got through without a problem, much to our relief.
Once through the locks and after giving the CRT guy a cuppa (he was on his own today and Tony helped with the lock openings while I drove the boat into the locks) we were on our way along the canal, enjoying the wild life and their new broods.
We had to stop half way as the engine was over heating and Tony had to clean the filters again,
then once we arrived at Litherland he investigated more thoroughly and found this lot wrapped around the prop. Rope, plastic bags and other rubbish.
Grocery shopping is done and we're ready for another early night and a day of rest tomorrow.
