A Mixed Bag

The weekend presented too us a real mixed bag, from snow, to sunshine, to biting winds and hail storms, but we didn't let that stop us having a great weekend on board.

 A spattering of snow when we awoke. Although by the time we got up at 9.00am it had largely melted.

 A sunny spell at Torksey.

 The river level was well up.

 By the time we had moored up, had breakfast and got ready to head out onto the Trent the river was up another couple of inches.

 Out onto the tidal Trent for the first time this year.

 A spot of sunshine.

 Stormy skies soon reappeared.

 I spy Toby Jug.

 Toby wasn't so keen on his new hat.

 Sunny Sunday on the floating Torksey cut pontoons. The Trent was higher today.

 Waiting paitently to head back onto the Fossdyke.

 The ditch was still up a little but far lower than on Saturday. Sluicing was at full flow at Stamp End, Lincoln.

 Another few hours in Lincoln and the river level was down still further but there was still quite some flow.

Rounding the weekend off with a lovely meal of morrocan lamb, sauteed new potatoes and a mixture of fresh vegetables.
