An early drive up the M1 and across the Peak District to eastern Cheshire this morning, to the Victoria Pit moorings at Higher Poynton for a boat test. We did the running shots first as it was sunnier than we'd dared hope. When we were all done, we popped into Braidbar to see Susan and Peter, and then had a Bakewell tart at the Trading Post.
The return journey took a lot longer, thanks to Friday afternoon traffic. I got back to Briar Rose at about 5pm. Adrian is on his way up from home, for a weekend on board. He's also having a slow journey.
