BW hard at work cutting back trees
On reaching Bradford about 11.45am we wanted to moor beneath the lock as space is limited above. It was also limited below but we managed to just get our bow on the end of the line. Geoff had just finished putting a mooring pin amongst the nettles for the stern when two boats further up decided to leave. We were tempted to stay where we were but the very noisy engine that was running in front of us decided us to move.About 1/2 an hour after our arrival Tony and Di duly arrived together with the big planter box of salads and herbs which she had kindly planted up for us. This was originally a present from them last year and I did have good intentions about replanting for this year which came to nothing. So we left it with them on our way to Petroc in April and thanks to Di it is now residing on the roof again.
We had a good day with them, exploring Bradford again and ending up for an early dinner at the Lock Inn. We had harboured thought of trying their Boaters Breakfast which they advertise before our departure on Wednesday but our dinner experience quite put us off that idea!
