Spring Summer Cruse 2015 ❻❺

Lower Ickneld Way Bridge to Fenny Stratford Basin

Date 28 Aug 2015

Overnight the weather was overcast but remained dry.

Morning: Early breakfast and and early start. Paired up with another narrowboat (Lola) to share the locks. Ate lunch on the move.

Afternoon: It was changeover day at Wyvern Shipping Co boatyard in Linslade. It was manic with boats pointing every which way. The boatyard were working the boats through the first lock and giving some hands on training at the same time.

We shared a few locks with a newbie crew and gave them a few hints and tips. It was a late finish for us. Ripper Street on TV being the favourite choice.


Birds: House Sparrow, Wren, Magpie, Carrion Crow, Rook, Jackdaw, Starling, Blackbird, Mallard, Mute Swan, Robin, Moorhen, Cormorant, Grey Lag Goose, Canadian Goose, Kingfisher, Grey Heron, Wood Pigeon, Buzzard, Black Headed Gull, Common Tern, Swallow, House Martin and Green Woodpecker.
