|I'm back on line with a new tablet after the other one died. Just learning all the new things about it-after 5 years with old one things have changed somewhat.
We departed Newark and thankfully this large log was out of our way. Wouldn't be very pleasant running into that.
We stopped at Farndon for a couple of nights - these boats were across the river from us.
This is the first black swan we've seen here and it was swimming around with a white swan and 3 youngsters. Would like to see what colour they turn out to be when they lose their grey down.
Our next stop was just before Nottingham at the National Water Sports Centre.
The people using it were having a wonderful time. It was fascinating watching them do somersault in their little boats.
The rafting boats went round time after time .
There was yacht racing over the weekend also. A very busy place. If you Google it you'll be able to see the length of the rowing track.
The sky was lovely with all the vapour tracks and the setting sun.
