Overnight the weather was cold with occasional showers of rain.
Morning:  09:15 start heading along the Bridgewater Canal. For what proved to an uneventful leg of our trip. We had found a paddle in the canal yesterday. Today we came across a kids group out for a paddle along the canal. So we donated our find to them.

Afternoon:  Stopped in Leigh to restock the vessels consumables at the boaters friend Aldi and Tesco.  Just after we set off A sudden gust of wind removed my hat into the canal. At the same moment a couple of people in short kayaks managed to recover it for me. So once again karma provides a Result!
