Quiet was an understatement - certainly compared to the usual Chaos up there with hire boaters and every other man and his dog... SOME people like empty and quiet... ME less so. I miss the peril of hire boats hurtling around corners/bridge-holes and the panic expression on their/my face when everyone tries an emergency stop of with 16 tonnes of momentum to try and reverse lol.
As we headed out of Nantwich, I spotted Robbie Cummings's "naughty Lass" near the services... his recent series on the BBC being very successful - so much so, that they've offered him another one... Good stuff.
Alas, he wasn't about to shout a hello to.
Just as Ellis sailed under the bridge, we spotted Jane heading back from the Laundry and shouted quick goodbyes (having already done the same to Roger when we past him a while further back).
