Lymm Again (without a boat)

Last week we spent a night in the North West attending the funeral of my dear Auntie Gladys. She lived to be 95 years old and was married to Ron for an amazing 69 1/2 years! Because we needed to be at the funeral mid-morning, we planned to stay overnight within an easy car drive of Manchester. Looking at the map Lymm in Cheshire jumped out at me. We spent two happy nights there on our Northern Cruise in April 2009 and found it to be a friendly interesting spot to moor; so why not use it to spend a night in a hotel.

The Lymm Hotel, not far from the M6, did us proud with a good room at a reasonable price with a great breakfast and friendly service. Couldn't ask for more on an occasion with mixed emotions. We even managed a walk around the village remembering all the spots we discovered when visiting on Albert.

The next day we travelled to the funeral and met all my cousins and their families. Some sadness at a passing mixed with some joy from the many memories of a wonderful couple. We are planning to meet the cousins on a more happy occasion in the Spring.
