Hop, Skip and a jump day

No particular destination in mind, but the plan was for Skipton at the weekend so we didn't want to go too far.   Barney and I walked as far as Silsden and detoured to the shop.  Just as we were leaving there we followed a boat through the first swing bridge and Geoff returned the favour for them at the next closed one.
There are so many swing bridges on this stretch it does make life a little easier if there is another boat near by.

However before we could go through the next bridge at Kildwick the mooring looked rather inviting, so we stopped and found a place mostly in the shade as the weather was threatening to be very hot again.

We cant afford to pass by views like this

en route we passed some wonderful gardens

We were moored and settled in time for coffee.

Total distance:2.46 miles 
Elapsed time:1h38m49s 
Average speed:1.50 mph (1.50 lock/mph)
