A beautiful day here in Cheshire with lots of sunshine and blue skies. We've been very lucky that our time in the van always seems to be accompanied by good weather.
This morning we mooched around the site and played more baseball. I am shockingly unfit, I cannot run to save my life and I'm puffing and panting after 5 minutes. Mind you I don't have to do that much running really because somehow it's always Thomas' turn to bat.
Then this afternoon we had a drive out to the Anderton Boat Lift. I have no idea about the technical side of this although it was explained but basically (and this is very much in layman's terms), you get in a barge, sail around the corner, enter a holding bay thing and then the you're lifted up from the River Weaver at the bottom to the Trent and Mersey canal at the top as another boat comes down. Not being technically minded at all it amazes me how people came up with these ideas and actually built things like this all those years ago.
After the boat lift we headed back to the van for more baseball and chilling out time to find this superdooper Airstream van was parked up just behind us. Isn't she lovely. Not sure I'd like the job of keeping her so shiny though.
I've managed to do loads of crochet and am so excited because the poncho has actually worked. I can't believe how simple it is to make one just by crocheting 2 rectangles, but uploading photos takes so long I'm afraid it'll have to wait until I get home.
And that's it for today. We're having a very laid back break this time which is fine by me.
