Summer Cruise 2013 (3)

Greyfriars Moorings (Rest Day)

More rain fell over night but the sky was clear by dawn. Whilst overcast for long periods the day was quite warm and pleasant.

Morning: Shopping was the order of the day as the ships stores were replenished.

Afternoon: Lazy day enjoying the warmth of the sun from the shade of the boat. Then having a trip by local transport home and back. Visiting many villages along the way. Some I had heard of and some I had not. A hot sweaty trip!

Evening: Drinking a couple of bottles of beer and enjoying the conviviality of the irregulars of the first battalion of the Doncaster Greyfriars boat club.

Wildlife: Bats in the evening emerging from the Canal Depot building. Mallards and Black headed gulls. Plus the odd dragonflies made our naturewatch day.
