Whether we were too hot or aware of the continuous drone of motorway traffic I’m not sure but we had another disturbed night’s sleep.
By 10 am though we were all ready to head to the winding hole – the most northerly place on the English canal system. The two boats, moored either side of the canal, posed for a photo opportunity. There was no waving of flags or cheering to mark this achievement. However I understand that the Lancaster Canal Society would be happy to receive our comments on our journey in the form of a questionnaire that we can download from their website and if we return it, together with a photo of our boat at the terminus and a cheque for £8.50 they will send us a commemorative plaque.
We headed back to the quiet of Carnforth and spent an afternoon doing very little. We may even have had a snooze.
