Here we are at the end of another stay and getting ready to move on. The stay in
has been very nice the marina is very nice and the staff great very helpful
with bus times etc the other boaters who are permanent here have also been
extremely friendly its just like being on Fettlers. Noreen says the shower
block, Toilets and Laundry are the best she has ever seen. But everything comes
at a cost and it wasn’t cheap but when you are out on the move you need to just
moor up plug in the electric and just sit back and CHILL.
Our Keith and Carol came Sunday and left this morning we have had a couple of great days together lots of fishing a god trip into York yesterday we even found a mooring. If you ever get the chance whilst visiting York try the Melting’s Pub just over Lindle bridge they sell the most fantastic chip buties and a great range of real ale well yes I know not completely in the diet but hey who cares they were extraordinary real chips cooked in fat not oil Ohhhhhh
We are booked in to go down onto the Tidal Ouse to Selby tomorrow morning at 08.30, we have received a few conflicting stories about restrictions on going down river between the 2 July and the 8 July because of high tides However when Noreen spoke the lock keeper this morning he did not mention it so we are going. If my next Blog is from the canal We Made it” if its from
or the North Sea “we didn’t “ Maybe its time I
had that Chat with MY MATE UPSTAIRS?????
The trip home ward is relatively plain sailing though I am sure there will be many tales add to the blog. As we are too long to go back a different way except for the river Trent and that’s a no go as we haven’t enough time before going to Australia at the end of August we will just retrace our steps its not as boring as it sounds we are meeting up with Stev and Phil on their boat Blossom and travelling back together as far as Wigan with them
Though before that we have to attend a funeral in Rufford one of our dear Boating friends has died and we dearly want to be there to pay our respects and say good bye. Travelling does sometimes throw stuff at you that you can never plan for I am sure with all our friends assistance we will be there
A FEW PICS OF OUR STAY UP ERE IN TIKE LAND
Tucked up for the night, we have never moored in such a quiet place
Morning Coffee in the lounge
This is a piece of art work on a disused railway bridge it is a great piece of local art
end of the marina moorings at Naburn
the gang together in York
Careful mooring in York, at the moment do not moor after Millennium bridge and
before the town bridge you will be grounded on rocks.
