Friday 10 June, 500 yds
I had a feeling that we were on a permanent mooring last night but didn't worry as we would shift the boat if the owner turned up. This morning I wandered down to the local boat yard to check as I didn't want to leave it where it shouldn't be when we went walking. Sure enough we need to move. 500yds later we find the next available spot and settle in for the day. Lyme Park is today's destination, a National trust property just under an hours walk away. On arrival it is straight to the cafe. Diana has been dreaming of scones, jam and cream since we arrived and she had tried theirs before. This was lunch and very nice too. Went through the house again and because of the wet weather it was not busy giving us a chance to see some things we missed last visit. Walked back in a bit of drizzle which had cleared the air and we could see a good distance. Dinner on the boat. The canal was opened today after a 3 week closure so off south again tomorrow and get a few miles covered.
