 The last two days we have reached the top of the Leeds and Liverpool and have now dropped down to Gargrave.

The panic of this week with Craig aboard was if the repairs to a lock in the Barrowford Locks.
A boat passed last night informing us that the lock had opened a day early but with time restrictions.
We managed to complete the flight just before closure time.

 Yesterday we cruised through Nova Scotia Wharf and are currently heading towards Burnley.
We passed a wallpaper company showing off their products on a old telephone box.
Also we are passing all the old mills some of which are in a very poor state.

Yesterday we met Yvonne and Dave , also Craig joined us for his weeks holiday and we enjoyed a meal in the Bay Horse Pub.
Craig took charge of the boat with seven locks facing him.
With the extra crew member and with Dave's help we managed to get three boats through very quick.

 Today we travelled through Wigan Pier on our way to the Wigan Flight after a 7am start.
In total we have done 28 locks meeting no other boats on the Wigan Flight.
This could be due to a lock failure on the Leeds Liverpool Canal.

Tonight we celebrated Diane's Birthday.

Happy Birthday Diane

As we stayed moored for Diane's birthday we thought we would take a short train journey to Southport.
Ruby screamed all the way knowing Hilary had a tennis ball in her bag.
But after a play and a long walk she crashed out on the train back.
