En-route to Middlewich we passed these beautifully converted stables and cottage. This nice flowery plant was growing in a side-pond. We walked into town for a few supplies and the weather was very hot and muggy. Tuesday we woke up to rain and thunder which soon cleared up, but it remained far too warm and humid for some. John and Ange passed us by on nb Iona slowing up to say a quick hello.
The steam boat Emily Anne came slowly and quietly past with by Daniel’s family on board, he was in India. Notice that someone has to climb on the roof to lower the chimney when they pass under the bridges!
We also spotted the unusual boat Elizabeth which we have seen before in various places. Later on she came up past us towards the lock.
