First of our really early starts, up at 5:00am moving by 6:00am. No problem exiting the marina. Approaching lock 82 on the Rochdale canal to return to Piccadilly basin.

Having unsuccessfully tried to moor just past Dukinfield junction where our friends David and Elaine are moored on their boat Patience, Jo stayed ashore and I carried on to wind at Whiteland's basin just before the start of the Huddersfield narrow canal.

I picked Jo up at the junction and we turned into the Peak Forest canal. Looking back at Dukinfield junction and aqueduct over the River Tame.
