Macclesfield Canal

it's been an iteresting trip down the Macclesfield canal, lot's of lovely scenery but very few moorings as the water is low and sides are shallow, had to rescue a dog from the canal too, it was on a walk with it's owner and decided it wanted a swim so jumped in, only problem was it couldnt get out again due to the high armco sides, so she asked me if i could get it out as she was scared of pulling on his collar and breaking it so i tied the boat rope into a loop and hauled him to the side then lifted him out by the scruff of his neck, one very grateful lady and wet dog. we had a walk into the retail park at lyme green and bought some new plant pots for my chilli pepper plants as they are getting too big.
