West Stockwith November 2018

Early start from Saxilby

Out onto the river.

Heading dowstream

Approaching Gainsborough

And it's time to go go go

Safely tucked up in the basin

And afternoon walk to Misterton and a few drinks in the Red Hart.

Back to the boat for a really nice steak dinner with garlic mushrooms and all the trimmings.

And then to the Waterfront Inn to watch the live singer who was really very good.

Getting ready to leave Stockwith

Not a bad speed for a heavily loaded boat towards the end of the season

A good blast

Not as bright a day today but we make good progress with a good push from the tide. 10mph in places at 1200rpm!

This little cruiser Dippy has found itself well aground on the approach to Torksey Viaduct. No hope of getting close enough to pass a rope across.

Back on the Fossdyke

Saxilby had really done a good job of their rememberance flowers.

And finally back to Burton Waters and a nice meal in Greek 2 Me. We found out yesterday we can take Sydney in here so I guess we will be going more often this winter. He was spoiled rotten by the staff!
