Recovery of NB Gurnamore

They've finally recovered NB Gurnamore from Ditchford Lock. It looks like they've had to lower the stretch by about 4 feet to do it. G found this video on You Tube. Click if you want to have a look

Saturday saw us back in Ely and I think we might have started a trend for this boat tieing together business - WB Pippin leaving Ely tied to NB Irene with James Duck on the front. Someone might want to tell them that one of them is pointing the wrong way - although it's difficult to spot as Irene sports the type of cratch cover at the front that is normally seen at the back!
Our reason for returning was to attend the firework display in the foreground of the floodlit Cathedral. It was extremely popular and the weather held up, but for a light drizzle

After ringing round a number of restaurants we'd given up on the plan to eat out as they were full.. We were split up from Lesley and Joe in the crush and then they phoned to say they'd managed to get a table in a nearby Indian Restaurant - a really good meal and it rounded off the evening nicely.
