On Friday we left Marple and headed back to Bollington again - making a quick stop at the Elsan in Marple and a water stop in Poynton on the way ! It was another brilliantly sunny day - we had to keep the dogs down below while we were on the move because they got too hot and bothered on the roof (I think they thought they were back in Sydney !).
We passed some other wild life on the way though ... we really were beginning to think we were back in Aus !
|Passed the Goyt Mill again !|
|Obligatory photo of Heron !|
We moored up this time just past the Adelphi Mill in Bollington - in a nice, cool, shady spot ...

The dogs were glad to get off the boat and go for a stroll - so we went to check out our dinner destination - The Bulls's Head at Kerridge ... what beautiful scenery along the way ! The boys came face to face with some cows too :)
So - in the evening we set off again to meet our mates, Jane and Andy and their dog, Pip, at the Bull's Head - where we had lovely Tapas !!
The beer garden at the back of the pub had some sheep and lambs in it ... poor Sammy was beside himself !
At the back of the garden was a pig shed also - so Jane and I went up for a visit - they were so beautiful !
And so, the sun set on another lovely day ...
On Saturday, we moved to Sutton - on the other side of Macc. We had to pass by Mr Grumpy's house (by the water point) - but there was no sign of him !

AND NOW FOR THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK .... LAST NIGHT WE WENT TO SEE GEORGE BOROWSKI AND THE FABUOUS WONDERFULS AT SUTTON SCOUT HUT ! (You can follow the link highlighted if you want more info / listen to some of their music). It was a show to raise funds in support of Sutton Scouts going to Denmark! GB was supported by a brilliant R&B band called the Mannatees and also Jimmy Lynch and Liam Ward...
|Surprise piper !|
|They all looked like they were having so much fun !|
As we were in a Scout Hut, for some reason we kept finding this sign on the notice board amusing ...
|There's no escaping Julia Gillard - she featured there too !|
|Jane and Paul by the notice board featuring Australia !|
If you ever get the chance to see him, do it !
That's it then - having a rest today after all that excitement !!!
