Goodbye Skipton

Whilst the south still seems to be basking in sunshine, in the north things have degenerated somewhat.
After a last shop in Skipton, we set off in the gloom and dare I say cold........still we were not planning to go far.
We found yet another nice mooring in the open just before the swing bridge in Thorlby

For most of the day we were on our own but later in the afternoon one other boat moored some way behind us.   Note the glowering sky
By late coffee time we were moored up and could indulge in one of the delicious cheese scones we had discovered in Skipton.

Geoff then departed, together with his faithful friend, to walk the couple of miles into Gargrave to suss out mooring for the morrow

Total distance:2.03 miles 
Elapsed time:1h 9m 28s
Average speed:1.75 mph (1.75 lock/mph)
