Day 2

Sunday dawned calmly with clear skies and smooth waters. This would be a canal day with no portages and therefore quite unique. The Cheshire countryside is beautiful with gentle rolling hills, woodlands and fields.

Just east of Lymm we reached the Barn Owl Inn where we enjoyed a well stacked carvery lunch washed down with gallons of steaming tea.

After lunch we progressed into suburbia. Industry soon took over and before teatime we reached the central Manchester and the YHA at Castlefield. The staff were a great help. They found us some secure storage space for our kayaks and joined in with carrying kit, providing help when we most needed it.
Wildlife of the day is this strange plant called Butterburr.
