Goodbye Vagabond.

On my afternoon walkabout I saw Biddie towing it’s buttie Olive away under the bridge going South. Further on down I spied the top of a crane and went down to have a look. Just in time to see the old trip boat “Vagabond” being carefully hoisted up out of the water. She was an elegant vintage motor launch about a hundred years old and used as a popular trip boat. You can read more about her on this site,

The next trip boat named “Harry Stevens” was already unloaded into the water and in need of some tlc before starting to earn it’s keep.
