A Boatman's Holiday

On Wednesday we decided to head up to Liverpool to see friends (& there boats) who where part of a display of historic boats in Liverpool Docks.

It was another lovely sunny day and we had a chilled out day chatting & taking it easy. Then George & Brian went out for a spin around the docks on Sandbach.

In the evening we went out for a meal with George & Irene Boyle & were joined by Brian's Mum & Dad & Brother Mike. We dined at La Tosca in Queens Square and had a lovely tapas meal in very good company. Brian, George & Bernie (Brian's Dad) retired to the Ship & Mitre pub for a nightcap, great pub with a wonderful range of beers. A lovely end to a very pleasant day.

Where did that Week Go!

Wow what a hectic week. I've been meaning to blog all week, but life got in the way!
We had a wonderful time at the Port, the weather was brilliant (almost unknown) and the company was superb (as usual). We spent a lot of time catching up with old friend including George & Irene (Sandbach), Tom & James (Archimedies), Rupert, Alison & Peter (Skylark) and plenty more. The weekend went by in a blur, but we got a brief chance to say hello to Sarah and Jim (Chertsey) - Sarah is in Photo, adjusting Chertsey's fenders.
The run back has been hard days & long enjoyable hours with lots of locks. Alton is now back at Ashton Packet for a final 10 days of repairs & refurbishment.
We're now off for a pint & bed!
