Altrincham to Manchester City Centre along the Bridgewater Canal, this was the Undiscovered Country, where the Map ran out and I was on my own, tramping up through Timperly, Sale, Stretford and Trafford.
That was also when the battery on my camera ran really low, as I hadn’t recharged it on Wednesday-Doh!
Sore feet and muddy paths didn’t help in the final stretch, passing a junction to Salford Quays, which I will have to do another day. Then I passed Old Trafford, which is big, and almost took a wrong turning by the Tramway, as you have to cross a bridge.
A really nice girl took that one- should have told her about the blog!! Ah well.
A pint and a Cheeseburger in the Piccadilly Tavern rounded off the day before getting the train home, nice!
Now that means that I have my Black belt in hiking, even getting over 300 photos, more than the 230 on the Mersey Hike, out on a nice day, taking in the sights, now that is what a long hike is really about!!
