We had a day off yesterday as we were babysitting the grandchildren.
Returned to Gecko this afternoon and our son helped us up ten locks in 90 minutes which was much better than we would have achieved without him.
We are at Hassell Green tonight near lock 57.
Last time we were here there was a lovely sunset. see: Sex Change at Tin Tabernacle
We have heard good reports of the restaurant here but can only judge it on the home-made flapjacks which are excellent.
Remaining diversion = 12 miles & 67 locks
