What plan has changed?

Circumstances, opportunities or position sometimes influence which way we go.  It has been many years since we had a chance to head further north with company.  A mad dash to Chester with Sue n Vic has presented itself.  The last time was back in 2002 when we were with Terry & Myra and their boat Butty Lark.  In those early years of our travels we covered a lot of canal ground each year.  Our southern commitment can wait.  Chester is one of our ancient cities created back in Roman times and still has a complete defensive wall round it.

While at Market Drayton I am trying to get my back redressed at the local medical centre but they are unable to take bookings because their computer is being upgraded!  Thankfully after a few days the nurse got to see me.  All was well and there was no real need to have it checked so often.  Then we had lunch in a pub with our friends and walked round the town.  We went to visit John & Sue who have a house by the canal with a mooring and boat outside their front door.  It was way back in 1995 that we got to know them when we both had boats in Newbury on the Kennet & Avon canal.

This is Josh and Ben the Ginger bread men made in Market Drayton.
