Well we didn't win the Six Nations, Ireland managed to put it over on the French which left us as runners up on points difference. I can live with that as it was B. O'D's last international for Ireland and he deserved to go out on a high. We did get the Triple Crown as a consolation.
This morning we set off from Coole Pilate heading for Nantwich, we got to Hack Green Locks, the last two narrow locks for a while, the rest of the locks down to Chester are wide.
Persistence eventually succeeded, an hour toiling in the grim depths revealed, in several horrid pieces,
On our eventual arrival at Nantwich there was nothing else for it, we adjourned to The Vine in Hospital Street, our favourite watering hole, for a well deserved libation. Hyde's Manchester brewery and excellent beer it is.
