Onto the Macclesfield Canal.

Last night was our last on the Peak Forest canal, this morning we turned left onto the Macclesfield canal. Buster made friends with workmen at the Marple services while we filled up with water and he helped them eat their sandwiches. 
We only planned on doing a couple of miles today, and found a place to stop just past Goyt Mill, we pulled over just behind another boat, this seems as good a spot as any.

Bacon toasted sandwich for our lunch and a walked down the canal to find somewhere to play ball. Nb Seyella was moored a few hundred yards ahead of us, we didn't see anyone to say hello to.

A nice easy day and it stayed dry too.

This duck was wearing a fancy hat.

Back to the boat for a nap and to watch the trip boats go by. One is a Briadbair boat so it is probably from their open day event further along from us. 

It didn't stay dry for long but by six o'clock it had slowed down to a drizzle so out we go, feet and legs got soaked with the long grass, it was nice to get back to the boat and settle down for the evening.
