A beautiful summer’s day, blue skies and sunshine all the way. We have cruised alternating between canal and river today. The gentle navigation of a broad canal and then suddenly wide expanse of river. The locks have been climbing steadily since we left Leeds, doing a total of 10 locks today. We stopped for lunch and a shop at Mirfield, then cruised a little further on to Cooper Bridge.
