After shopping in Lymm we set off. The forecast for Wednesday was not good so we thought we would get as far as possible so we could hole up on Wednesday!!!! In the event it began to rain as we left and rained on and off all day.......so much for the BBQ summer. Eventually moored at Astley. Not a brilliant mooring but we had had enough.
Wednesday 29th July
Short hop to Pennington Flash before the rain set in again. We stopped briefly in Leigh to buy the paper and then found ourselves a lovely mooring with a view of the flash and lots of lovely walks for dogs. Rain again but it cleared sufficiently late afternoon for Geoff and Barney to go for a long walk.
