The weather was the same as yesterday when we set off from Cholmondeston this morning – but more so! Grey clouds threatening rain and windy. We had a few spits and spots but nothing significant. At Barbridge Junction we turned to port, back onto our beloved Shroppie proper. We soon reached Hurleston Junction and thought very briefly about turning onto the Llangollen and doing it all over again, if only to go to Snugbury’s for more ice-cream, and to complain that the tub of Raspberry Ripple I bought last time, had no raspberry and no ripple – it was just vanilla! But common sense prevailed, and we continued on to Nantwich where we filled with water. That done, we continued on to Hack Green, and up the two locks to our planned stopping place for tonight.
