Yes, it's official. We finally left Aston Marina this morning heading north. However, in the words of Ned Stark (Game of Thrones), Winter is Coming, since before we left we handed over a deposit for next winters mooring on the same pier. This is in anticipation of the same gang being there as well and matching the incredible fun we have had this year. Thanks to everyone who joined in and made it so memorable.
It was a tad windy as we left the pier with some rain in the air but we only planed to go as far as Stone for supplies before the cruise really begins on Monday.
Last week we had a few days in the south to catch up with friends and family. It was great to see everyone and we will see you all again in the summer.
Our cruising plans are not finalised yet but the plan is to head up the Macclesfield canal first and then head back for the Anderton Lift and the River Weaver later in the spring when the weather has warmed up a bit.
