Back home in Timperley, our swans have produced two youngsters.
The towpath is fairly dry, apart from at a spot where a water main appears to have burst, but this recently surfaced section of the Bridgewater Way, between Sale and Brooklands, is particularly benign, without so much as a pedestrian in sight on a sunny Monday morning.
Anyone for a bike ride? Tomorrow (Wednesday 22 June) morning at 9.45 am from Baslow Church (SK 251 723) – about 20 miles, of which half will be off road but not technical – at a gentle pace about 3-4 hours.
PS You may have noticed a duplication of this posting and a test posting. This is because Windows Live Writer failed to transmit the posting and gave me the following error message:
“The server reported an error with the following URL:
405 HTTP method POST is not supported by this URL”
I managed to resolve the issue by uninstalling Windows Live Essentials and reinstalling the software, following this guidance.
(Just in case anyone has a similar problem.)
