After feeding his lordship and walking him in the warm morning sun we got under way. We had hoped to fill with water at the Lymm Cruising Club but were told in no uncertain terms it was for members only and that the next tap was at the Old Number 3 pub 2 miles on.

|Odd states at Agden Wharf|
|Beautifully kept old wooden cruiser. not a mark on her and all wood gleaming with varnish|
|Can we live here Chris please?|
|Nearby is this old caravan. Again someone has looked after it well as its in pretty good condition|
George Clarke would have been interested in this one.

Two other boats were queuing so I quickly stopped and gently reversed back up. The tap is just before a long line of permanent moorings and the last boat offered to let us breast up while we waited. There was no need in the end as the boat filling moved off and the other one shuffled up making room for us, we thanked the owners for their offer all the same.
Whilst waiting we got chatting to the crew of the boat filling and they had two dogs. A Jack Russel and a 10 month old Parsons Russel bitch. Smudge and the Parson's Russel got on really well and played happily whilst we waited our turn. The elderly Jack Russel joined in and all three scampered about tails wagging.

|Who needs a selfie stick|
|Poor Smudge was beginning to feel the heat so found a shady spot under the chairs for a snooze|
|Our mooring for the night with only one other boat for company|
So for the next few days our cruises will now need to be a little longer to get there in time. We'll still have plenty of time so not too long a cruise each day.
