Spring Cruise 2013 (4)

New Inn Stainforth to Keadby Lock.

Weather: A covering of ice on the canal, the sun was weak and watery it took some time to break the frost. A good covering of hore frost on the towpath.

Car Boot: Stainforth holds a small car boot sale on Sunday mornings. However today it was bitter wind chill that kept all but the brave and foolish in their beds.

Meal: The new Inn was the location for a get together when thirteen boating crews had an enjoyable Sunday Carvery lunch.

Underway: By early afternoon, with a very cold wind that proved the worth of the pram cover. Crews taking it in turn to operated the various swing and lift bridges soon had us moored up for the night.
