Today we are almost home, at least we're back in Chester.
We had just released the mooring lines this morning when Mark from Dee O Ghee appeared to say hi. Unknown to us Dee O Ghee was moored two boats back from us. They had returned from Audlum historic transport festival and would be returning to the marina today. It was too late to stop so we made a promise to meet up in the marina later.
The stretch of canal into Chester continues into the Cheshire countryside with only the river Gowy for company. The route is petty in its own way but there is not much to photograph until Tattenhall Marina is reached. We're staying out until the weekend so this time we passed it by.
