Avon calling...

 Caxton being reversed off the pontoon by Himself
We slipped out of our mooring in Bancroft basin at 9am this morning to drop down through the lock onto the River Avon.  We have paid to moor on this beautiful river for two nights in order to extend our stay in Stratford-upon-Avon; it's too good to miss!
 Matilda Rose and Caxton in the Barge lock
 The lock gates are open and we are on our way out beneath the new bridge
 Matilda Rose following us out onto the River - a better view of the new bridge that spans the lock
 Approaching the Royal Shakespeare Theatre
Moored against the recreational field opposite Holy Trinity Church where the Man himself is buried.

Poetry - gave up on it when my cousin's daughter said she'd been 'sonneted' in Stratford - sounds painful :-D
