Another hard day today but we are all volunteers! A simple and enjoyable 12 miles down the Bridgewater Canal then a lunch in a cold windy corner by Old Trafford Football Ground.  The afternoon was a different story.  6 miles through the centre of Manchester where the locks were so closely packed that it was not worth the effort of putting the boats in the water.  Of the 6 miles we walked over 5 pulling the boats on their trolley wheels.  We have decided to rename this trip "Carry my Kayak to London". At some points the towpath ended and we had to take to the streets.  Amazingly, the 3 of us were walking through the centre of Manchester dressed in sandles, shorts and bush hats pulling kayaks. - nobody batted an eyelid!
