|We were moored here where you can see the geese for 3 nights leaving on Sunday, We had to step up over a foot to get off the boat. Paul took this photo this afternoon. So glad we moved into the marina.|
|This is Birstall Lock, to think we came through here on Thursday,|
just less than a week ago.
Saw Dave and Joan again on Sunday when they took us shopping at Tesco and then took Paul to the bike school to pick up a bike. A mild panic when Paul lost his documents, but fortunately, Dave found them next to where the car had been parked. Huge sigh of relief as this was his licence and pass certificates that he has so far completed. Phew, thank you Dave.
So after a day of training and a day out on the bike yesterday practising and getting used to the bike. Test was due at 14.05 this afternoon. Unfortunately there was so much rain this morning that his test was cancelled due to the amount of surface water around. So at the moment we are not too sure what we are doing next. One thing for sure we won’t be going very far as the river is now in flood. The rain stopped about 3 so we went for a walk and the tow path that we were moored on for several days is now under water, by about a foot. That has meant that the river has risen about 2 and a half foot since we left there on Sunday.
