It was our first time canal boating and although quite scary to be left in charge of such a large boat, we had Sir Ironside but after a couple of days felt quite confident. We were shown the full workings of the boat which is quite a lot to take in but then things are when having not done them before. The locks were a little tricky till shown, and everybody is really friendly and helpful, one lady giving me a bottle of suncream as it was a hot day. We went up towards Chester and really thought we would make it in a week. There are many pretty pubs to moor up over night and the week flew by, the great thing is we had all our things with us and arrived at a different destination each day. It was just stunning. Don't expect to get that far, it really is a leisurely trip and the week flew by. Can't wait to go again.
