Second and final day here. Chance to restock at the Sainsbury’s Local, visit the Brewery tap (yes, a real micro brewery!), do some boat chores and relax.
Could that be the picture of the trip? Well, the sun did come out and the panels started to feed charge back into the batteries. A slow start, probably due to the spag bog last night preceded by G&T, garlic bread and artichoke tapas and a whole bottle of Chianti Riserva! There was a market in town plus extras to buy that were too heavy yesterday.
Lymm is a pretty town with many places to eat (fish n chip, Indian, Chinese, Mediterranean, Turkish …) plus a chance find of the Brewery Tap
The Porter and Summer Meadow were excellent.
Plenty of shops, including an excellent butchers (Steve insisted on standing by this sign, it’s not true, he’s not local)
The central cross, dedicated to Queen Victoria, had some interesting sun dials
Tomorrow, it’s off to Stretford Marina via Sale. Then we have a whole day to iron the Red Carpet for the visit of David Thomas and then Sunday, off to Liverpool!
And in the afternoon we walked the dog down to a brook below the canal, where there was an ancient mill that used to split iron and make nails! Fascinating and we then followed the path up to the dam – didn’t know there was one! Through the dingle and then a walk around the whole lake – great walking and great for a Toby swim too
See that church – it’s got gargoyles . .
And here’s two more on the Wishing Bridge
A very wet dog but also a very happy one!
Rain’s coming, again but tomorrow looks OK. Back to the Brewery tap …
