Wonderful to be back out on Herbie at the weekend. I needed reminding how much improvement our mechanical work last October / November had made. Cor she does run smoothly now.
Anyway here are some photos starting with MB Willow ascending Foxton locks with James at the tiller.
Now you see why Severners were sometimes called long boats!
James waits patiently for the gates
and entertains the gongoozlers
back to Herbie, moored next night in the middle of nowhere. Not much sign of spring despite the lovely evening.
a picture of me walking tall
and this wonderful (ex) tree seen over the thorn hedge. Pity about the pylon cables, I suppose I could photoshop them out, but life is too short
and next day our trainee skipper brought us home
