Worsley back to Dunham Woodhouse Underbridge.

We had a lovely evening in Worsley.

It obviously helps when you have a stunning backdrop.

This morning we woke to the sound of the traffic on the Motorway and the birds singing. Awakw at stupid o’clock, so I made us a cuppa and some toast before we eventually got up.

We set off in brilliant sunshine, with a view to stop at the Trafford Centre if there was room.

We managed to moor at the Trafford Centre, because Linda and George on Wandering Star were just leaving and so we nipped into their space. Having locked up the boat we went to have a look around.

The entrance is impressive.

But it continues to get more impressive.

It is quite an amazing place, and we now know why so many friends have said we should visit it.

I wanted a couple of new hairbands and infact I got 3 for the price of 2 so a bargain. Keith bought a new compact camera and then we had a Pizza Hut buffet lunch whilst there. We decided that we would continue our journey, leaving room for someone else to enjoy the Trafford Centre, so we cruised on to Dunham Woodhouse underbridge, where there is an offside mooring, and just as we were about to moor up, John and Judith on Serena arrived and also moored there, so we had a quick catch-up with them.

Both Marmite and Paddy wanted to go out and Marmite made the most of it.

She was upsetting the local population of Magpies and Crows, who were being very noisy in a tree next to the boat, but she did not care.
