A first today — a bit of boating on the Lancaster Canal. Andy the photographer picked me up at Towcester at 7am and after a journey that was rather slow in places we got to our destination at 10.30. The weather was better than expected, at least at first, so we set off on the test boat to get the shots of it on the water. The section of the Lancaster we covered (only a couple of miles) was very pretty, with some lovely views — none of which I took a photo of. We were all done by about 1.30,and the journey back was a bit quicker. I’m staying on board tonight, and will go back home tomorrow morning.
