The grass cutters were out in force again even though the ground was saturated. I suppose they have to do this job whatever the weather. Not happy about the strimmer being used while boats are going past. Stones can still be picked up and become missiles peppering the cabin sides!
Bridge inspection being done but we had to laugh at the 'men at work' sign.
Laughingly asked the workman if they were Welsh. "No," says he giving us a wink "Didn't you know it's Nuneaton second language"!
Back at Starline boat yard and again we had problems getting through. Seems every time we get to this point Sods Law takes over sending oncoming boats our way!
Back at Marston Junction and two boats appearing from the Ashby. Sods Law strikes again
Very pleasant cruise to bridge 22 where we stopped. Port cabin side in the shade so out came the polishing cloths. 30 minutes later and two very smug and self-righteous people patted each other on the back. Time for the beer and wine me thinks.
|Cloths all washed ready for next time.|
|You do see some strange things on boats!|
|Crow mobbed Buzzard....Buzzard turned on crow!|
|I'm almost certain this is a Sparrow Hawk|
|A bit blurred but thought it easier for identification just in case I'm wrong.|
