Moored: Devil's Garden, River Weaver
1. Just perfect.
2. Narrowboat 'Alton' pays a visit.
3. Ann-Marie and Brian.
4/5 NB 'Alton' heading home (thanks guys).
Yesterday, Brian and Ann-Marie, aboard their carrier NB 'Alton' (Renaissance Canal Carrying), dropped by as they neared the end of their monthly 10-day delivery run-out before heading back to base on the Macclesfield Canal. Having topped up with diesel, we also bunkered 1.5cwt of coal (a fire is glowing in the grate of the woodburner as I write). Oh, and it's raining!
I've said it before, but I can't praise those two enough for the products, services, advice, news and the good humour they bring with it while going about their business in all weathers. It's very, very much appreciated and an invaluable resource they provide for many boaters living a life of solitude on the cut.
