Today we left Stoke on Trent in the bright sunshine with the tree's in their Autumn colours.
Tonight we are once again moored near the Wedgwood factory and once again red sky at night.
Even when you are moored in the country at night you realise you are always not far away from civilisation.

 Yesterday we left the Caldon to moor at Festival Park leaving the Caldon through the deep staircase locks.
Red sky at night meant a nice day today and it was completely right.

Today we had the worst weather of the whole trip starting the day with heavy showers.
It gave me the chance to use the boots that Claire,Craig, Darren,Maisie and Poppy gave me for my birthday.

Tomorrow we start our journey back as we are now moored in Leek.
This is where the journey started to have the boat built and the first time we were here to meet Jason was when Claire and Craig were studying for their exams.

Today we started out on another canal the Caldon, we have not travelled on this canal since our first trip on The Maisibert.
When we moored for the night a lady was walking along the towpath with a Meerkat on a lead.

 Yesterday we moored in a place where a lot of friends and family will remember as over eight years ago The Maisibert took to the water.
In the evening Maria and Neil visited us and we had a few drinks in the pub.

When we left Stone we moored just down the cut from the Wedgwood Pottery.

As we cruised through Stone today we bumped into Joe and Keith off Hadar where they had arrived for a gathering of work boats.

The last couple of days we have travelled through Great Heywood where we caught up with Rita and Scooby and had a great evening on Diane and Peter's boat.

Today we left the river and continued on to the Trent and Mersey Canal.
Though the forecast said it was going to be colder today in fact it was warmer than yesterday

 Yesterday Hilary was twenty one again and was presented a fabulous cake made by Claire.
Sadly the meal at The Dolphin didn't live up to expectations.

 Today it was Poppy's turn for a day out as this was the first time we had taken her out both of us were nervous.
As it turned out all of us had a great time and looking forward to the next time.
