Dunham Massey to Moore Bridgewater Canal

09:20 Sunday 19th September and we've winded (turned round) and are on our way back to Sale to meet once again with friends Sandy and Mick for lunch - and yes it's raining again - and cold! 
Travelling with the hood up today ... Molly hates being cold ...
 ... and there she was ... gone!
 she likes to sleep under cover - cosseted or what!!
Had a lovely time with them - hoping that we'll see them next at Tattenhall when we get back from our holidays. We winded once again and returned to Little Bollington for the night.
 On our way to Lymm on the Monday this cormorant was ducking and diving 
 and starting from the town centre went for a walk around Lymm Dam finishing up by the church - I'd forgotten my camera and so George used his phone camera
 Tuesday we came across these Manchester Ship Canal working boats
 the men upgrading the towpath ... 
... with gravel from the barge.
 three little white ducks .. a long way from Aylesbury
a Jay - these are quite shy birds but we've seen several in the last week or so.
After using the services provided by Thorne Marine  at Stockton Heath we cruised on towards Moore where we'll stay the night.
PS: Thorne Marine have had yet another reprieve from closure for another 3-months. It would be a great loss to the Bridgewater Canal to lose this valuable and friendly service.
