We tried to make plans to get together for this years cruising but weddings and babysitting duties seem to have got in the way (plus we have no idea what the Consultant will say about the MRI result) and now it's unsure whether we will even get together. All we can do is read each others blogs and try and tie up somewhere together later in the year. Lovely to see them both looking so well after their trip to New Zealand and great to catch up with the gossip.
Leaving early this morning we headed off for Branston Water Park. Hardly any boats were on the move and very few moored up. Even here at Shobnall Fields near Burton no boats were seen. Makes me wonder now if there are fewer boats on our waterways. Maybe folk think boating is getting to expensive these days.

|Amazing what people put on their fence.|
|An amazing sight. Nesting swan and nesting goose on the same patch!|
|Let me in mum!|

|Jade enjoyed her swim. There are no warnings this time about blue green algae which, in the past, had restricted her enjoyment.|
