A lovely evening followed by a busy day to Bradford on Avon

 The sky at 6pm as we left for our meal at the Barge Inn
 Half moon at 9:30pm
 20 past 10 this morning from our mooring - waiting for two boats to come up Seend Lock, there are two waiting to go down and one to come up ...
... my turn next!
 Approaching the traffic island at Semington Top Lock
 Semington Wharf under the bridge ...
 ... where the Wilts and Berks Canal used to go from here to Abingdon.
 All wrapped up - hope it's cosy inside ...
 ... very slow going today past long lines of forever moored boats ...
 Cattle enjoying the pasture
 lovely honey coloured buildings
 took minute or so to realise that he'd taken the middle line and was going to pull in to the right of us so quick change of direction needed
 Approaching The Boatyard where the diesel was just 82p - we'll call here again on the way back
 Hilperton Marina - in a nice setting
 Police crime scene tape on this boat - looks as if there might have been a fire inside recently
Old working boat Mercury in need of a bit of TLC!
It was just after this that the heavens opened so no more piccies (aren't you glad).  Nowhere to pull over to moor; we went through Underwood Bridge to Bradford Wharf but no spaces there either so we reversed back under the bridge, put the nose in, the plank out in the stair rod rain and thunder and lightening - and we're not moving again today!
