Spring Summer Cruse 2015 ❻❶

Black Jack Lock  to Common Moor Lock (Croxley Green)

Date 24 Aug 2015

Overnight the weather was a continuous light shower of rain.

Morning: Not to early a start as the sky looked ominous and brooding. After a light breakfast we decided to pull the pins and cruise along for a while. Almost as soon as we moved off the rain returned. We arrived at the first lock where we stopped to take on water.  By the time we came to the second lock the rain was getting heavier. We passed through and began to look for a mooring.

Afternoon: Late afternoon the rain blew over and a bit of weak sunshine encouraged us to move on a bit further.  Two more locks and what seemed like miles of moored boats later the rain started to threaten again. Time to look for a mooring for the day.

Evening:  Television watching again.


Birds: Mallard, Mute Swan, Coot, Moorhen, Cormorant, Canadian Goose, Great Crested Grebe, Grey Heron, Wood Pigeon, Black Headed Gull, Common Tern, Swallow and House Martin.
