Had we not already arranged to meet our friend in Skipton, we'd have stayed put The reason of course being the truly awful weather... I don't mind rain, snow, sleet,hail or sunshine - but mix any of those with a gale force wind and 10 swing bridges with awkwardly placed landings (by awkard I mean side on to aforementioned winds), the journey was truly awful.
I came the closest I've been to falling in... not from careless foot work OR attempting too big a leap.. no. Instead, it was the elastic cord on my old scruffy Berghaus jacket which got caught on cabin hook 'mid leap' off the boat on a windy bridge landing... Andy could barely help for laughing!
Having composed myself I vowed to cut it off!
(which I've yet to do)
Before I forget - here is another photo of the interspecies family from the other day.
We can't reach agreement as to whether the infiltrator is Goose or Duck - Answers on a postcard please!
Also, missed from yesterdays posting were these photos of "Kennet" Andy took as we passed her.
