Easter 2014 - Part 5

Day 5
Washingborough to Lincoln

3 Miles 1 Lock
Total 28 Miles 4 Locks

 Cruising the short section of river back to Lincoln.

 A busy scene at the Glory Hole, Lincoln.

 No moorings here for us today.

 The much photographed Glory Hole or High Bridge to give it its real name.

 With no moorings in Lincoln it was time to head to the Pyewipe for a few pints whilst some boats came home. Then head back to Lincoln for a curry.

Day Six
Lincoln to Burton Waters

2 Miles 0 Locks
Total 30 Miles 4 Locks.

 With the day to ourselves we head out on the tourist trail of Lincoln. First stop the Lincolnshire Life Museum. Here are a selection of their motorcycles.

 And "Flirt" the tank.

 Steam traction engine.

 Then it was a walk around town. Not sure I would fancy living here in the shadows of the castle walls.

 The cathedral towering over the city.

 Pretty buildings everywhere around the city.

The walk back down Steep Hill is easier than the climb to the top!
