Friday 5 December

We’re waking later each day as the nights get longer!

The sun came out eventually and we moved off but with so many boats moored along the canal there was no chance of breaking the 4mph speed limit as we passed them at tick over.

As we passed Upper Poynton, a dark cloud appeared and by the time it passed overhead we were prepared with umbrellas. The heavy shower lasted about ten minutes and the sunshine returned.

We kept going and reached High Lane by lunch-time and pulled in. Not long afterwards another dark cloud approached and this time it didn’t rain – it hailstoned.

As the afternoon went on the temperature dropped and by this evening the footpaths looked as though they were made of quartz as the hailstones had frozen.

(Total 5 miles, 0 locks)
