MONDAY 21ST JUNE 2010
We had a phone call yesterday from good friend Lynne to say that she would like to bring her 90 year old Dad to visit us. We knew that Lynne was visiting her parents, who live near Halifax and we were expecting this call.
The day was perfect and we were waiting on the Vale Royal Lock pontoon so that we could be the first through at 8.30am, soon after we through Hunts Lock and tying up right in the centre on Northwich between the two swing bridges. Castle Street passes very close to the river at this point and it was easy for Lynne’s Dad to get from car to boat and as an ex submariner he felt very much at home, really enjoying the cruise to and from Saltersford Locks. He was such a fun and lively person it was a delight to have him and Lynne on board.
