Amazing. We were in the heart of Sale, trains running alongside the canal and cars going over the bridge but by the time we went to bed, not a peep was heard. So apart from the rain continuing on and off throughout the night and intermittently waking us up, it turned out to be a very pleasant mooring.
A late start for us and leaving Sale we headed off toward Stretford Marina to do the usual water, loo and rubbish stop. Then we headed off for Worsley. Well that's where we wanted to go but suddenly we came to a parting in the ways. Surely not at Waters Meeting Junction already??? That was when Ian decided to look at our Nicholson's. Oh blast the book confirmed that we should have headed off to the left onto the Leigh Branch. Instead we had continued on and was now on route for Manchester. Where was the finger post!!!Missing that's what!! Anyway, not having gone too far out of our way Ian started the reverse and straight into a blooming great armchair. No time for a sit down FS! Anyway we completed the turn and got ourselves back on track.

|Another good mooring.|
Some sort of sport shoot was going on.
