Icefloe in the canal

I took my "new" sea kayak for an early morning paddle along the Bridgewater canal, going up towards town from Walton Road to where the three arms of the canal meet. This boat is noticeably faster than my old Perception Carolina but there is a lot of work to be done on it.

My GPS (Garmin Foretrex 201) locked up on me for the first time ever. I managed to force it to reset by holding all the buttons down. I'm guessing that it didn't like the change of location from Denmark (where I used it for a 15km run on Wednesday).

There was a lot of floating rubbish in the canal, including some large pieces of timber that could damage a boat.
