The first stretch, to Lock 1 wasn't new for the boat. She was launched at the marina there on arrival in March.
We had an escort of kingfishers for most of the way. Have never seen so many on one stretch of River Too quick for the camera though!
Cruising slowly along the winding Woodford River. I decided that as we had sunshine I would polish THE headlamp. Shock horror!! At a blind bend the Inver Quenn cam towards us. At,some,speed. I leapt up and put my hand up. He screamed into reverse and went right across in front,of us. Then he shot forward and. Issued us by inches. Continued on at a somewhat slower pace. The speed of action meant no pics ..but she is big enough close up!!
