Pushing our luck.

We had a lovely weekend, in which Pamela, Nathan and Archie came to visit us while we were moored at Hapton.On Saturday we walked along the canal to bridge 119(Shuttleworth Hall Bridge)where we found a very nice Farm Shop.
This morning we set off through Clayton-le-Moors,to a place called Church,where we passed a sign telling us we were half way across the Leeds Liverpool Canal. A friend of our Stephens was going to meet us with his grandson,for a short ride ,however the little boy wasn't too well so they didn't come. Stopping for lunch half way between Rishton and Blackburn,we then decided to push our luck and go through Blackburn before mooring for the night. In Blackburn we descended six locks a total of 54ft 8ins.
The weather had been kind until around 5-o-clock when the heavens opened yet again. We carried on till 6-30 when soaked we moored for the night. That will teach us to quit while we are ahead.Todays pictures are the mooring at Hapton and the view across the hills,just before the cloud came down and hid them.
