We had a food stock-up at Asda next to the Trafford centre and waited for our laundry delivery which arrived, neatly folded,around 1.30 pm. To begin our trip to where Sadie disappeared we needed to turn the boat round, which our laundry-son helped with before commencing work. We set off late afternoon and filled with water at Stretford marine services, where the facilities and staff are excellent. From there we made Oldfield Brow where we moored for the night. Oldfield brow is the very edge of Manchester suburbia and nothing to write home about, but it will do for us tonight.
