To the top of the cloud.

On Saturday morning the sun was shining out of a clear blue sky, a perfect day to take a walk. The walk started quite sedately, across fields, but always heading for the 1000ft Fell known as the Cloud. We were soon on the upward path through the woods, eventually coming out on some very rugged terrain. On reaching the top, 1000 ft above sea level, the views were stunning. We could see Liverpool, Manchester and the mountains of Wales in the distance.
After lunch we moved on from Congleton and moored at the lovely restored railings below Mow Cop where we had arranged to meet up with Dot & Gordon.
On Sunday we all got together for a traditional Sunday lunch on board Oakapple. Dot's contribution was a delicious chocolate confection which was irresistable!
This morning we parted company, Dot &Gordon heading for Macclesfield, while we started making our way down the Cheshire Locks towards Middlewich and the river Weaver.
