Spring Summer Cruise 2014 ❾

Keadby Lock to Torksey Lock

Overnight the weather was cold and overcast. The wind had dropped away. We were kept awake until 11pm by a generator running on board 'Spider T' which is moored at Keadby.

Morning: Early start out onto the River Trent by 6:30. Four boats in convoy. Just past the peak of a spring tide. It was nice to be flow assisted all the way.

Afternoon: On arrival the lock was waiting for us to go straight in. Made our way to the visitor moorings which were almost empty. Round the corner we met up with Cliff and Chris two boating friends.  

Evening: Poor television and internet connection. Lit the stove as the temperature quickly fell after sunset.

Wildlife: Sand Martins, Buzzard, Great crested grebe, Lapwing, Whitethroat.
