Too wet to move

Today was to be the day to move off. The plan was to move towards Manchester. Well about a mile, where we would moor up and then walk another mile to New Mills so Diana could go to the dentist. The idea of arriving at the dentist cold and wet didn't impress Diana so we took a taxi. Dentist visit successful and now there is a lot happier girl, Drugs haven't worn off yet. Walked home via the tow path to find the canal closed with a sunken cruiser (plastic type) on one side and a narrow boat gone aground trying to get passed. Guess we were meant to take a taxi.
The positive side of still being on the Marina is that the local and proclaimed to be the best Fish & Chip shop is only open for diner on a Wednesday & Thursday so Haddock & chips for me. Lovely fish, the chips a bit different so I reserve my opinion on them.

Lyme Park. A quick visit when returning the car.
A full day visit required in the future
