Homeward bound

I guess we've been heading home since leaving Liverpool but today it hit home . This morning we passed the junction with the Macclesfield Canal and so completed are various loops of the northern canals. From now on, we are re-tracing our footsteps down the Trent & Mersey.
Yet it hasn't been a downbeat day. The sun's been shining; we've done a sizeable tunnel (Harecastle) half a dozen locks, finished the washing, 'dealt with' the toilet and spotted a few things that we didn't see first time around (like the wonderful looking lakeside wildlife building in Stoke. Now we're moored up in countryside, watching the sun sink.
In short, we've had one of those all-rounder days that makes you realise what a unique business canal boating is and why we enjoy it so much.
