On the last day of 2017 we have moored up at a very pleasant outlook near to Church Minshull, close enough to the church to be able to hear the bells, particularly if they are chiming at midnight tonight.
The trip today was very pleasant, not as cold as recent and with the sun out for some of the time. The forecasted rain waited until we had moored up for the night before starting, so that was one bonus. After the first shower of rain had passed I took the opportunity to fix a broken ‘popper’ on the cratch cover. This has been broken since we passed through Standedge Tunnel (the only damage we suffered on the trip) but it has taken until now for me to bring my pop-rivetter to the boat from home.
Not sure how long we will remain here, we may move on tomorrow, or if the weather isn’t too good, we may not.
