Here we go again and its polish and wax time. I did the port side about a month ago with MER polish and then a coat of MER wax. I must say that after spending nearly £30 I am very disappointed with the results. It has only been a few weeks and already the shine is going and the Oxidation in the paintwork is returning. So for the starboard side I am using an all in one polish and wax which I have used before.
After a day at Nantwich and Carolyn having a good bit of retail therapy we had another early start at 07.15 and got straight onto the services . The plan now is to head towards Chester and spend a couple of days there ,but you never know what may happen on the way .
The good thing about being retired and not having any commitments is that you can change your mind . So after lifting the fenders so that we didn't get stuck in the narrow bottom lock we head up and onto The Llangollen Canal.
Opposite our mooring for the night after a 6 hour cruise and its harvest time for a good looking crop of Potatoes. We will have a night here and then in the morning have another early start and get up Grindley Brook Locks which can be a bit of a bottleneck where sometimes you have to queue for several hours as there are 3 locks before you get to a staircase of another 3 locks..
