Summer Autumn Cruise 2011 (6-5)

Friday September 29th

Goole Boatyard.
Day 40

A clear cloudless sky as far as the eye could see heralds another Indian summer day. We are moored between the boatyard and the Yorkshire Waterway Museum which we hope to visit later today.

The Aire and Calder canal at Goole is very busy with pleasure craft as well as commercial vessels. So there is something of interest to watch at all times.

Where some people like to sit quietly and people watch – we have now perfected the art of aquatic boat watching – which is an adaptation of the traditional Gongoozeling where boat watching is done from another boat.

Lafarge Aggregates large cargo vessel Battlestone arrived at 11am to moor up opposite the visitor moorings complete with a full load of sand. Humber pride arrived mid afternoon and moored up just below Battlestone. Later Heather Rose H. Arrived with a full load of sand and also moored up for the weekend. It is good to see that some traffic is still using the port facilities.

We enjoyed a “Quiet” evening in the Goole Boathouse bar.

Only a couple of Pipistrelles detected.
