After a great night's sleep (courtesy of all the work yesterday) we set off about nine this morning and in lovely sunshine chugged along the lock free section as far as Chorley.
The canal winds through some beautiful scenery, with views of distant hills and rolling pastures.
At Chorley we moored up and I went into town to raid Morrison's for some provisions. As usual they're doing a great deal on some wines, so I couldn't refuse.
Not long after returning to the boat the sun disappeared and once again the rain started up. Hope it clears up by tomorrow morning.
