Heading back

Today it was time to head back towards Frankton Locks, I have booked passage for us all on Wednesday so we would have time to collect and cut lots of wood ready for the winter from the pile we saw on the way down.

Before we went anywhere we had to travel down to the winding hole to turn Morgana round then it was time to head back up through two of the three Aston locks to the woodpile! After a leisurely hour's cruise through the flower lined banks we reached our destination.

We spent a couple of hours collecting and cutting wood, tomorrow it will be more of the same then Wednesday will be a journey up through the locks and on to Ellesmere.

Todays journey 2.9 miles, 2 locks and 2 lift bridges

So far this year we have travelled 197.6 miles, 127 locks, 24 lift bridges and 5 tunnels

Since Ray retired we have travelled 936 miles, 772 locks, 55 swing bridges, 28 lift bridges and 30 tunnels
