The Macc

After blogging last night, I decided to make the most of the sunshine and clean the brasses.  So I got up on the roof to tackle the mushrooms, which haven't been cleaned since October.  Brasso made no impression to start with, so I had to get the Bar Keeper's Friend out.  Once that had got the worst off, I went back to the Brasso to give a better shine.

This morning was lovely and sunny, and I set off up the M6 heading for the Macclesfield Canal.  Near Birmingham, the sky changed from blue to thick cloud and stayed that way for most of the day -- right up until the time we were leaving.

There were quite a few boats on the move, and many more moored up.  Some people might recognise the first boat through the bridge.

It was an easy drive back to Brinklow.  At the boat, I walked round to the bins to get rid of the old glass from the stove (fire glass can't be recycled).  Then I got the hosepipe out and topped up the water tank.  It was sunny and warm, and the fire was still alive, so I had the front doors and the side hatch open.  Tomorrow, I'll be retracing most of today's journey for another boat test.

You see a lot of nice looking boats around that bridge!
