|last bit of the river.......goodbye Avon...up into the basin.|
|Good bye swans|
|The bridge leaving the basin onto the canal is a bit low so we had taken the precaution of removing the satellite dish|
We had a heavy load in the wheelie basket coming back.......so Geoff had to wheel it.......serves him right for buying this new black job and insisting I get rid of my flower power one. This one is bigger so holds more but then becomes to heavy for me to wield!!!!
Soon after setting off again, there was a clunk from the engine and guess what.........
|A big thick sweater........|
|A school party of 54!!|
|They delighted in helping with the gate as we left.|
It is very strange to be back on the canals and I am having slight withdrawal symptoms from leaving the beautiful Avon. I have to say we were so lucky with the weather which meant the river was behaving itself. If there had been lots of rain and a danger of it flooding I would have been only too glad to get back into the relative safety of the canals.........
