|In Wroclaw with Richard|
We arrived back on board at Dewsbury where all was well. Having stocked the cupboards we planned to move on, on Tuesday, but it was so windy we decided to stay another day. Only for storm Ali to arrive on Wednesday!!
|Winding in the wind!|
It did give us chance to catch up with some new friends we had made there in the marina. Ralf and Julia on NB Omega. When it came time to leave Ralf was on board with Paul helping to pole around. We wanted a pump out so Paul had to reverse out, turn and reverse back on to be on the correct side! All in a fairly small space with the wind blowing!
|Broad Cut Bottom Lock. It did empty eventually!|
A short cruise this morning brought us to the bottom lock which as you can see left leaks a lot. Paul was getting quite wet on the stern!
Just one more lock and we are now in Wakefield. We were planning to stay here the night, which is just as well as just after lunch the heavens opened.
Still we are not complaining about the rain, as parts of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal are still closed due to the lack of rain over the summer. However we are carrying on with our plan to cruise it, so may be spending the winter up north!
Will keep you posted as we go.
