Magic combination


River Severn just north of Stourport

 A magic combination, one river and two labradors.  Floyd and Fletcher are competent and keen swimmers  most Labradors are, it's a breed attribute afterall, so easy access to the Severn is proving very popular with the dogs.  We have been out walking along the towpath each day as well as a ball game in the extensive park here in Stourport but yesterday I bought an Ordnance Survey Explorer Map (2.5 inches to the mile) so we can explore this part of the world properly.

a bit of grazing as well

 Having been for a swim
it is now time to roll

Hi Lesley
Try walking to Bewdley along the Servern Way and back along the other side of the river, I did it today with Tucker while June did her Inland Helsmans Course from Stourport basin on NB Enigma. She said she saw your boat as she passed through the basin.
All the best with your new boat bob June and Tucker GDB

Hi Brian
Our pair travel inside the boat when we are on a river. In the early days on Caxton we had Fletcher leap off the back to the non-towpath side, Floyd fall in through some narrows with another boat looming towards us - nightmare! Now the boys are on the towpath with me or IN the boat.

Hi Bob
I wish I had known you were both in town - the dogs and I walked to Bewdley yesterday, lunched by the river and wandered back to Stourport. I saw Nb Enigma in the basin, I was sitting on Caxton's gunwale with a glass of vino...
How did the course go June?
