Not a good start, the drumming of rain on the roof of my bedroom in my long kennel is an indication that I will not be taking him for his walk anytime soon. He doesn’t seem to enjoy walking in the rain.
There was a short respite and we managed a quick walk before it started to rain again quite heavily but by this time we were all well inside the Waterside Cafe warm and dry having a second breakfast. (At least they were). The forecast was for a dry spell around noon. They read the papers drank cups of coffee and chatted. I slept on the floor.
Right on time, the rain stopped and the sky brightened and we dressed up in our condom suits just in case and set off.
It was a very beautiful cruise as we were on the edge of The Peak Forest and although it could have been enhanced with some sunshine, there was no wind, the water was flat calm, the reflections were stunning and it remained dry – until we arrived at Marple.This is where the Peak forest branch leaves the Macclesfield and will take us to our destination which is Whaley Bridge and nearby Bugsworth basin, all being well tomorrow. The forecast is for some sunshine, paws crossed.
I was dragged around for a little explore in the town of Marple with umbrellas for them and bought a few supplies before we returned to my long kennel and my bearded one lit a fire, to dry me.
My photo tonight is my long kennel at our mooring at Marple Junction, I took it from the bridge in the rain.
