Saturday after just a short cruise we arrived at Nantwich. Time to restock the larder. Wanting to be sure of TV for Strictly we decided to stay put for the night. The Canal at Nantwich is up on an embankment and we had noticed the fairground behind the trees opposite. We thought about moving but didn't. Glad we stayed as we were treated to a lovely firework display outside our window and all was quiet by 9.30.
Yesterday we came across the fuel boat and you can see him taking the coal to put on our roof. We also needed gas, so certainly very good timing for us.
Last night was spent at the bottom of Audlem Locks, there are 15. Today as we were working up several people were walking by. One couple commented about our Falcon and we chatted. They were Alan and Kathy and they helped us with at least 6 locks. In return when we moored just after lock 3 for lunch we asked them to join us.
I think we all enjoyed the short interlude. For us they were a big help. For them they had an insight into boating life. A retired couple who enjoy walking along the Canal.
