Heading north again.

 Spray, built in 1920 for cruising Lake Windermere and now tripping on the R Avon.  This is one of two trip boats built by the same builder.  The other boat was built prior to the War in 1910.  Both boats were very busy over last weekend which was encouraging for their owners because both boats will be coming out of the water for their winter refurbishment

Back on the canal and heading north again

Where are you headed for now?

I had a feeling that you were going down the Avon but obviously not. I keep forgetting that the winter is on its way and the canals are a much more benign place to be when the rain falls....
