We have our first few cruises under our belt and the glorious Leeds and Liverpool continues to deliver. Our first run down the Bingley 5 Rise and the other amazing staircase locks and of course the tunnel. It is such a pleasure working a canal that is both stunning and not too busy, no queues for locks and water points! The views across the dales continue to amaze me and it is so great to be back amongst them, there really is nowhere like it. We have been sitting on top, hard to believe I know but we have had some cracking days.
We are starting to see ducklings and goslings and the swans are sitting on huge clutches of eggs, spring does seem to be on its way.
