This week to head in to Macclesfield, Its now become the rhythm too things, to a few days before I move dad comes with his car and walk or drive a long the canal network to a stopping point I have picked out.
Now so far that’s been simple, over shooting or under shooting little town, villages and the odd however Macclesfield is a big place which does change a few things, You see Macclesfield have set out four mooring points with in the town limits.
Each have the following limits (working down passing AstraZeneca) 3 days on a set of flooting pontoons, 48 hours just out side the Puss in Boots public house, 14 days just after bridge 39 then 3 days at place called Gurnett.
As always I picked the 14 days which was Ok only with Ezri being only being 35 foot the well used gaps in the anchor barrier don’t fit to well so both me and Dad end up with getting stung by the nettles, as we try to tie the ropes.
Its surprisingly tranquil and almost like being back out in the sticks, with the houses on one side and the start of the golf culb on the other its like being on the border of a great forest, the only thing is that with rain comming I may have put the fire back on. Well just for one night
As always thank you reading and see you next week.
