Tuesday 28 January

Again rain was forecast for the day but by 9am the skies were again blue.   We were just thinking of setting off and instead decided to just wait a minute or two to let the traffic pass …


We moved off and when we arrived at Preston Brook we had just five minutes to wait for our passage through the tunnel.  The sun was still shining as we came out of the tunnel although before long the clouds started to build and as we went into Saltersgate Tunnel it was just starting to rain.  When we came out at the other end the rain was quite heavy.  We continued on a bit further and made it to Anderton where we moored up and decided to call it a day as there isn’t much point getting absolutely soaked as it takes so long to dry everything afterwards.
