Today we had a short cruise from Bradford on Avon to Dundas Aqueduct, where we plan to moor until Sunday (FA Cup Final tomorrow, and we have a good telly signal here!) We started off in slight drizzle which came and went throughout the morning, but the scenery was lovely anyway.
After lunch we all took a stroll along the remains of the old Somerset Coal Canal, which is now used as moorings, to Brassknocker Basin. Rog was most disappointed not to see any ladies with brass knockers – said it was obviously not cold enough (I think he was likening it to balls and brass monkeys – but it’s hard sometimes to know how his mind works!)
On the way back we stopped and chatted to chap with beautiful 1920’s launch, the Lady Sophina, which belonged to a local hotel, and was for hire for afternoon teas and drinks parties – he said it gets quite ‘cosy’ inside in inclement weather with eight passengers, and a glass or two of bubbly soon has them all friends!
