Friday's Cruise

Done the tidal Trent Keadby to Torksey, rather boring actually apart from the spray coming over the bow and hitting us in the face.

Now on the Fossdyke canal(which was kindly built for us by the Romans nearly 2000 years ago) and moored for the weekend at Saxilby,

Coming out of Keadby Lock onto the big, big river Trent

At the bottom of Keadyby Lock

Ken caught a fish, fish ok, Ken traumatised and gave up fishing!

Sliding railway bridge on Yorkshire Navigation - one of only three built

Lynda pushing a swing bridge, oooh, I am soo strong!!!

House boat!!!

Lynda operating a lift bridge. What power I have, stopping the traffic, almost as much as a car park attendant with a limp!
