(Boat Flamingo - posted by Alan)
Well the blog managed to founder far more spectacularly than we have ever achieved before! Nothing posted afer just the first day of quite a major trip, and indeed there have been further trips since.
Rather than leave a complete void, we will attempt to retrospectively add a few pictures, even if it is now, in general, a bit too late for many words!
Here, only about a month and a half after it happened, is a flavour of our trip to take Flamingo to Alvecote for the first time
EDIT: Second attempt at this day, after Adam correctly pointed out that my days didn't match my photos!
This was actually a short day due, in part, to a very scary incident we were involved in at Hillmorton Bottom Locks, and about which I am still awaiting a response from CRT. I have decided not to further discuss details until CRT have finally made their response.
