The Ploddin' Along crew and that of Clarence had to depart today. We wondered along to push them off in the nicest possible way and then for ourselves, we set sail too, mainly to satisfy the "Boat Sharers" Amanda and David before they too departed later on. We decide to start on our way early, or let David Lewis drive and went through Tixal Wide and beyond. I can just about keep up to sped with bikes, cars and husband moving all three on one day but on days like these when its two men, two cars, a bike and a boat, I get awfully confused awfully quickly.
|Tixal Wide, so named because its a very wide section of canal.|
|Tixal Lock with David Lewis playing with ropes, Amanda out of sight operating and my David vanished.|
A wee aqueduct and the view overlooking the Shrugborough grounds, its all most attractive around here.
|You don't see many duets on the nest.|
|These two coots were having a right session, at each others throats, Mr Lewis said they both were wanting the same female.|
|Me next to the two pixie seats that are soon about to find themselves reattached|
|Now I remember where he disappeared to....he made the tea.|
|Lovely newly treated pixie seats in place, Thank You Mr L.|
We walked bake to the previously deposited car, loaded, headed back to "Base Camp" where we were going to have another Barbie Queue with Yarwood's Joe and Lesley before we all departed for pastures new.
