Spring Summer Cruse 2015 ❻❷

Common Moor Lock to Hunton Bridge Lock

Date 25 Aug 2015

Overnight the weather was light showers of rain and cooler than it has been for some time.

Morning: Early breakfast and an early start. We soon caught up with a widebeam who was single handing. After a while we passed and then caught up with another narrowboat. We worked through several locks together. We were setting the locks to empty for the widebeam. 

Afternoon: Just after 1 pm the rains started once again and we found a bit of armco and moored up for the day.  Later the weather improved and we did a further three locks before the rain started again.

Evening:  Television once more.


Birds: Mallard, Mute Swan, Coot, Moorhen, Song Thrush, Black Headed Gull, Common Tern, Sedge Warbler, Swallow, House Martin, Green Woodpecker.
