Heartbreak Hill.

Friday we were up early, it was chucking it down when we left the marina at 07:00. We took the car to Hassall Green and walked down the sodden towpath to meet with the crew of the 'Pasty' boat. Our offer of help had been readily accepted to help with Ewn ha Cul's passage up the remaining 18 Cheshire locks.

It was mostly dry and I had an enjoyable morning working the locks -  sustained by Dot's world famous pasties. 

Back to Stone  where Sue had her barnet cut before we joined Richard & Sharon in the Exchange for a early doors ale.
Gordon & Dot leaving the last lock..
Saturday it was The Final and what a great final it was as the two of the greatest teams in Rugby Union went flat out for the win. The All Blacks were just too strong despite a gutsy Wallaby comeback in the second half.

Sunday started foggy which cleared to a warm sunny afternoon only for the mist to descend later in the day. Hopefully it will clear tomorrow for a trip down the motorway for a friends retirement do.
