Shopping done we carried on towards Sale.
Long and straight is the only way to describe coming into Sale, and a rower was making sure he had the whole width. He did move over at the last minute but we were still hard over on the offside. As he came past we noticed a mirror attached to his hat. No excuse then not to see us and move over in plenty of time.

|Long and straight.|
By Bridge 35 we moored on rings again, only a very short length but just enough for two boats to tie up and we managed to get on the tail end. Walking toward Sale town centre we came across a Pet Shop also selling fishing bait. Not quite the tackle shop I expected but at least I could get my wrigglers. Then on the way back I noticed a ladies hairdresser doing dry cuts for £10. I dont mind paying that for a 15 minute cut, it's when they ask over £15 that I object to. I could be shorn within the hour so back to the boat to drop off my bait before walking back again to have a short back and sides. ( I really have gone very short! At least I wont have to be done for a while)
We were going to continue on our way but the rain started as I arrived back at FS. It rained for 5 hours so we battened down the hatches and decided to stay. Trains were very near as well as cars going over the bridge and we did think we could be in for a noisy night. Oh well I expect things will quieten down eventually.
