Forgot to mention in yesterday's news that we tackled our first tunnel. There are special rules for paddlers in tunnels on the canals. We can only use tunnels up to a certain length with good sight lines.The Woodley tunnel was OK so on with the head torches and, you will be pleased to hear, that we made it out the other end.
Also forgot to tell you about our welcoming party at Bollington. David's granddaughter Eva and 2 of her friends lined up to form a guard of honour.
