... quiet fist thing and gaining momentum towards lunch time. By the time we had re-filled our (now nearly empty) water tank on Tuesday, the wind was so strong that we only just managed to get off the side. Fortunately Bottisham Lock was in our favour so we didn't have a repeat performance trying to get off of the lock landing. It was nice to see that all the sluice work there had been completed and the temporary bridge and polythene wrapping was gone.
They'd moved it all upstream a bit to the road bridge at Clayhithe where we moored - perhaps a bit of a mistake with hindsight as they continuously run a generator to operate power tools
On our way back from a walk into Waterbeach we found this bike half hidden in the bushes (it wasn't there on the way in) so we pulled it out and padlocked it to a sign on the towpath to see if someone came looking for it as it was in pretty good condition. No one turned up so we 'phoned the Police and they came and took it away. If someone stole it, why would they then dump it? Strange
The lovely woven willow bridge has also been completed since our last visit in November, yet it still appears to be taped off - perhaps elf and safety haven't given it the all clear yet
The reason I wasn't able to blog for a while is because, for the first time ever, we used up all our contracted data allowance with 3. 'We' couldn't understand how this could possibly happen until 'we' realised that 'we' had been streaming data so that 'we' could watch television in bed whilst I was reading. So that was it; no internet until the new 'month' started.
