A Message?

Our new battery is in and our engine now starts.

For the uninitiated, that means we now have electricity and hot water. ( If you are interested, I claimed first dibs on the shower. It was wonderful. )

We then headed three locks down the canal before mooring for the night across from a lovely field of sheep.

We now have three locks, a double and a single, before we make a left turn into the Middlewitch branch of the Shropshire Union Canal.

 We were informed via email last night that the first lock there has been temporarily closed due to a boat being hung up on the lock's cill. ( A cill is a ledge found at the front and back of a lock. It sends your boat from a horizontal plane to a diagonal plane rather abruptly.)

Another message from God that our Ireland trip is not to be?
