It was just the most beautiful sunny day for a cruise, not too cold, wet or windy either. Just look at that wide blue sky with it’s white cotton-wool clouds! There weren’t many boats moored in and around Grantham's Bridge as I walked by with my windlass, but plenty were moored above Moors Bridge 72, with only one gap left that luckily we managed to squeeze into.
These are the artworks carved into the oak balance beams on the topside of the middle lock. There were several boats on the move today but unfortunately none of the locks were in our favour. We were in no mad rush anyway and were happy to ‘lollop’ about in the sunshine for a change.
