Douglas Diary Wednesday 7th October 2015
It is a grey and blustery early morning and the bearded one and I have just returned from our walk. We are at Rode Heath, moored outside the Broughton Arms, a lovely spot where they had a good meal last night while I was diligently on security detail in my long kennel. The weather forecast for today is drier and sunny this afternoon.
To my alarm, I have had lots of messages in the last 24 hours to say that my friends cannot access my diary on www.douglasdiary.co.uk but this has now been fixed, a server issue – sorry.
We left our time in the county of Staffordshire after a handful of biscuits and it was a busy and a wee bit damp morning with 15 locks descending down to the Cheshire plain.
We stopped for lunch at Wheelock in beautiful sunshine for a rest before descending a further 6 locks a total descent of over 160 feet over several miles of lovely countryside and walks for me to arrive for the night at Middlewich. (Famous for salt production since Roman times).
The weather in the afternoon got better and was dry as promised and very pleasant. It was a long hard but enjoyable day for my long haired one and for him, he claims, standing on the back of my long kennel….. and I too am exhausted but then I have quite short legs. Love Douglas.
