North Yorkshire Cruise: Naburn Lock to York

Wed 15 June A short trip to York

After a leisurely start, we walked around the lock and weir area,

chatting to the couple on Eunoia (meaning "good mental health"), then to the workmen and divers who had just recovered a sunken narrowboat from the other rising pontoon visitor moorings just above the weir.

Keeping an eye on possible moorings, we enjoyed the scenery. There were loads of moored boats of various types and standards!

York looked lovely, despite the cloudy skies, and we avoided a number of trip boats on our way to our mooring near the York Museum.
