About Me

70 now and our five wonderful years aboard our narrowboat Skyy seem along time ago. Jacquie, allowed me to build my replica three wheeler kit car, which was a great success. Now it's time to start on a bigger project and that is to make a good Triumph Stag even better, here goes.

First thing in the morning I spoke to the BW Regional Manager who said that the twenty foot deep Tuel Lock would not be reopened until the following week, they were intending to bring their own pumps in, but this would take some time to organise and install. As there were no services before the Tuel lock, he strongly recommended that we back up to the nearby winding hole, turn around and head back to all the facilities of Hebdon.

Before we took his advice I took this picture of the strange wood carving that was just the other side of the wall from our overnight mooring and then we did as recommended and returned to Hebdon Bridge.

It was a beautiful afternoon and the BBQ was lit for a late lunch, John started to cook the massive steaks that he had contributed, but sadly it started to rain, undeterred we squeezed up under the sun umbrella and enjoyed the meal so much so that we all had to have a lie down to help digestion.

Hi Andrew

Sadly The Leeds & Liverpool is going to closed because of the water shortage, so we shall start to head South on the River Trent.

That should be exciting
