It’s such a lovely river, we’re enjoying the sound of birdsong, we’re enjoying the changing views, we’re enjoying the locks, we’re enjoying the sun.
Whilst we were at Peterborough we had a good hard surface to work from and we used the quiet space away from the town centre moorings to do a few painting jobs. That is, Ian did. We’re trying to get a few areas painted, and more presentable as we have to prepare for selling Tacet at the end of the year. But we don’t want to think too much about that now.
Before leaving Peterborough (I won’t repeat pictures of the city) posted when we came downriver, we went down to the Dog-in-a-Doublet lock which takes you onto the tidal Nene down to Wisbech and out to sea.
Talking to the lock-keeper we were tempted to go down, but with timings etc, decided we’d give it a miss, so we turned around and have got back into the swing of regular locks again, sharing them with a single handed narrowboater. Yesterday was a lovely day.
We got to Fotheringhay at about 8.30, we love cruising into the evening like that, and moored below the wonderful church with the big square tower, I remember my brother calling them squirches when we were little.
And along the way we enjoyed passing through Water Newton……..
