Spring Summer Cruise ❼

Stainforth Junction to Thorne visitor moorings 

 Overnight: The weather was overcast with light showers of rain.

Morning: Overcast start to the day. A quick walk around the Sunday market and a few packs of plastic tiewraps were purchased. We had previously decided to have Sunday lunch in the New Inn at Stainforth. So there was no hurry to be under way.

Afternoon: Football was the main item for the afternoon after lunch. We watched Liverpool -v- Chelsea. Afterwards we embarked upon a late afternoon cruise to Thorne. Heading for the finger moorings.

Evening: Arrived at 5:30 to join two other boats already on the finger moorings. By 7 pm it was starting to get cold, so I lit the stove again.

Wildlife: Chiffchaf, Robin, Sedge warbler and our first Reed warbler of the season. Mallard with eleven chicks. Later a Tawny Owl sat in the trees overlooking the moorings giving the occasional calls.
