Things We've Seen Today.

Weds/Thursday 1/2nd August 2012.
Stoke Bruerne to High House Wharf.
10 Miles  0 Locks.

Today's journey has been quite short, we tied up about 1.30 opposite the Caravan field at High House just as the sky started to look dark and threatening, light rain on and off until 4.30 when the heavens opened for 25 minutes, it wasn't enough to put the fisherman off on the opposite bank, he sat through it.

He must really enjoy fishing.

The weather started of ok today.
Looking towards the top lock from our
mooring for the last two days.

And back towards the Tunnel.

A Yellow Peril (Viking Afloat) hireboat attempts to turn
 above the top lock only to find that it's not going to happen.

Nutfield and Raymond moored at Blisworth ready for
the Blisworth Canal Festival, 10th/11th August. The Festival is

St John's Ambulance Boat The Mountbatten Crusader, specially
adapted for disabled people and moored at Gayton Junction.
It took part in the Jubilee Pageant on the Thames.

Converted ships lifeboat, somebody must love it.

Anyone remember The Boat That Guy Built ?,
 someone's having a more serious attempt this time.

Tomorrow, weather pemitting we'll moved the short distance to Stowhill Wharf and top up the Diesel tank, then on towards the dreaded Buckby Locks.
