Our Bank Holiday trip along the River Weaver...................... on the Arctic Star

I have already posted about this years first boat trip on the River Weaver... 

Mandy's dad's boat... Arctic Star moored at Duttons Lock.

   
I took some video clips during our journey to and from Duttons Lock.
I hope it gives you some idea of what my local river is like... loads of reed beds for the warblers.

Mandy's Dad... Alan.
It's hard to believe he had a quintuple heart bypass just a few weeks ago... his recovery is going really well.

the river looks peaceful. i like the reflections of the bridges and the gate/lock/channel passage is neat.

Oh, VERY nice boat!
And it's definitely hard to believe the man in that last photo had a quintuple bypass mere weeks ago.

I am so in love with canal boats -- you have no idea. We were lucky enough to take a day cruise on the Thames ... it was a highlight for me. If we had more time and more money we'd come back and rent one ourselves. Dream vacation for me!

Loved the video Andrew, so nice to hear the birds twittering away in the bushes on the river bank. As much as sailing on the ocean terrifies me, I love the idea of cruising the canals.
